Microsoft: Linux not getting it all its own way

OwlWhacker writes "At its 2004 Australia-New Zealand partner conference in Coolum, Queensland, last week, Microsoft held a special session on countering Linux and Roworth told attendees that for every seemingly dramatic customer switch from Windows to Linux, there are cases of switches the other way.

Unfortunately, he didn't provide any examples, because, he says, few companies that have spent substantial cash conveting to Linux, then decide they'd be better off going back to Windows, are willing to talk about it.

He said several sizeable US companies have done just that and that Microsoft has convinced some customers who were about to go down the Linux path not to."
