Microsoft defends use of special fund

Dave_B writes "Microsoft has defended its practise of discounting Windows, even giving it away to beat a Linux alternative.

The effect of this public statement from MS, that it will give away its OS to deny Linux deskspace, is yet to be seen.

Legal repercussions aside, how are MS reps going to sell licensing 6.0 to customers who know their bargaining power will be subsidised by Redmond's paranoia?"
