Pinning their hopes to a community of the little people they've repeatedly 
fscked over and over again, can their be a bigger sign of desperation?

Microsoft hopes community approach can take on Linux threat
Not just about tea and pizza

By Peter Judge, Techworld
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.

To counter this, Microsoft is now aiming to build a"community" round Windows 
products, although it's unclear how it hopes to achieve this. The company 
also intends to push Windows as a platform that gives IT managers more power, 
as compared with traditional consultancy-led IT projects.
