Microsoft isn’t really afraid of Linux

According to their latest fillings with the SEC Microsoft claims that Linux is no longer a threat on the desktop.  This story over at Business Insider tries to make more of it than it really is. I personally love seeing Linux getting the Apple treatment.  After playing with PinguyOS for the last couple of weeks I am starting to change my opinion on Desktop Linux.  I am running Windows apps in VMWare just like I have always done with Linux when I am forced to use Windows.  While there are only a few things I need to do in Windows I still can’t live without it at work.  So let Microsoft and others keep thinking that Linux can’t do the desktop.  Remember they thought the Internet was a FAD also.
