Linux club helps firms hide from Microsoft

The first rule of Incubator Club is don't talk about Incubator Club. The founders hope that their confidential forum for organisations considering
Linux will help stop Microsoft 'doing another Newham'

Local authorities and companies who are interested in ditching their proprietary software in favour of open source are being encouraged to join a
confidential scheme that aims to protect them from the attentions of firms such as Microsoft.

The initiative, called The Incubator Club, is said to be a response to the tactics employed by some major software vendors against firms and
organisations who consider using Linux.
