    Default MS offers BestBuy employees Anti-Linux training

    Sad but true, this sort of thing has been going on for years. M$ is strong and the stores will do anything to keep their primary supplier happy. Having spoken with staff who took the training they express how soon Linux of any flavor will no longer run on any form of PC as M$ implements it's anti-Linux software detection strategies. They (M$) are scared. To trash talk the public may work for now but eventually it will backfire. (I hope sooner than later)

They have tried over the years many things to damage linux, including launching bogus-claims campaignes, yet nothing has really worked out for them. Also, a screenie of the Best Buy lobbying

    Funny that Linux doesn't support free software downloads, considering the whole system and its apps are free
