Microsoft blames Linux market share on Red Hat
Wired.com has the report. "An attorney for Microsoft argued in court Monday that Red Hat had failed to popularize the Linux computer operating system because of its own shortcomings, not because of any interference from Microsoft. Cross-examining Red Hat Chief Technology Officer Michael Tiemann, Microsoft attorney Stephanie Wheeler said Red Hat had spent little money on research and development, and dedicated few of its employees to winning over software developers to write programs for Linux."
