Microsoft hopes community approach can take on Linux threat

Creative IT departments should use Windows not open source, says Microsoft,

warning that Linux will become a tool of the grey consultants.

The Redmond-based company is aware that it is losing the PR war to Open

Source software and has stepped up its efforts to woo enterprise users. The

company has challenged the assumption that Linux is the natural successor to

proprietary Unix systems. But it admits that a major plus point for Linux

has been the community of ethos of Open Source.
