Default This is getting out of hand...

I found this article while browsing and I can say that the OS battle is really getting out of hand.

See here for a more complete slide show:

Honestly, does M$ have to go that far?

Hmm... have to... as Chrome OS (based on Linux) is looming up.

Next comparison will be what M$ can and what G cannot.

Obviously someone in a high backed leather chair at MS HQ is getting worried

The guys who built my system for me here said they much prefer to install with Linux because then they never see the customer again unless they drop it!

Good thinking Jojoee. Linux whatever that means might be a slightly annoying to MS, but I also think they have more than Linux in mind. This could be about tomorrows battle, Windows/MS vs. everything else.

Besides that MS just seems to make it harder to like their products the more they promote They recently did more or less the same with IE8 vs. other browser http://www.microsoft.com/windows/int...s/default.aspx Marketing forget product must be way superior, or competition really horrible, to get away with such attitude without coming across as *****s.

Hehehe.... in M$'s Browser comparison chart, IE8 has 10 ticks in all 10 categories of comparison, FF3 has 4 ticks, Chrome2 has only 3 ticks.

No matter how M$ ticks them, my choice is just the opposite

This is my points (out of 10) based on my frequency of using the browsers
9 points go to Chrome2: for best speed performance in browsing a page.
7 points go to FF3: for best available addons.
3 points go to IE8: for compatibility only when needed.
