Submission + - Linux highlighted as threat to Microsoft->

begituindah writes: Red Hat and Canonical have been highlighted as threats to Microsoft's Window's client business for the first time in a submission by the software giant to the US SEC. The article claims the rise of Linux in netbooks has forced MS to acknowledge the two companies' performance in its Form 10-K submission. In the past Microsoft has only said Red Hat's server tools business was a threat. But in the article the author says: "The filing goes on to note, in a thinly veiled reference to netbooks, that Linux has gained what Microsoft characterizes as "some acceptance" as an alternative client OS to Windows, in particular in "emerging markets" where "competitive pressures lead OEMs to reduce costs and new, lower-price PC form-factors gain adoption." http://www.arnnet.com.au/article/313782/microsoft_acknowledges_linux_threat_windows_client
