+ - Asus slaps Linux in the face-> 2

vigmeister writes "Techgeist has an article about an 'It's better with Windows' website from Asus and MS. I think the article should've been title 'Asus stabs Linux in the back'. "Linux just got a major slap in the face today from Asus. One of the highlights of Linux going mainstream was the wildly popular Asus Eee PC preinstalled with a customized Linux distro geared towards web applications. While I personally never got what the big deal was, I was still happy for all the Linux people out there waiting for this day, but it looks like the cause for celebration won't be lasting much longer. Asus and Microsoft have teamed up and have made a site called It's Better With Windows. The page touts how easy it is to get up and ready with Windows on an Asus Eee PC, while slyly stating that you won't have to deal with an "unfamiliar environment" and "major compatibility issues." While it is silly to state such a thing since Asus built the Linux distribution specifically for the Eee PC, I give Microsoft two points for snarky comments.""

Asus slaps Linux in the face

  • I think it's a shame that Asus would pull something like this. I'm sure that some big execs at Asus are getting paid big bonuses for their join ad campaign with Microsoft. (Read: Asus execs sell souls to sleep with the devil.)

    Microsoft is doing what they do best: Spreading Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt about anything that is not their own software. I think it's sad that so many of us can't stand using windows, but don't bother trying to use anything else.
