I am just writing this to ask if you have noticed the increased amount of Microsoft advertisements. (Especially here in Europe). I was watching LIVINGtv and there has been 2 or 3 in the last few hours. I have reason to beleive that it is Microsoft trying to win back customers who have turned to other Operating systems. SuSE Linux is the best selling and most downloaded Linux of Europe, More and more companies and individuals are conveting to Unix/Linux systems. I personally do not think it is a significant enough rise for Microsoft to be worried as Apple have been a more powerfull opponant compared to Linux and yet they are not as powerfull as Microsoft. Mandrake, RedHat, Fedora and Debian Linux are also increadibly popular, there are a lot of downloads of these operating systems especially in Amerika, home of Microsoft. Could it be that there is a significant enough rise in Linux users that Microsoft are now afraid? Does anyone know? It does seem suspicious though, If you have any comments please add them... I am really interested and want to find out what is going on as it is bugging me that Microsoft now advertise on TV and in Magazines more than ever.
