Submission + - M$'s Anti-Linux Training at Best Buy.->

twitter writes: "Best Buy is one of the few national computer retailers that has survived Vista and the recession. Here's how Microsoft is training their employees. It's like a throwback from the badly discredited "Get the Facts" campaign.

I work at Best Buy (insert boos and hisses) and I was doing some Microsoft ExpertZone training. ... during my training modules, a "Linux vs Windows 7" module appeared. Here are screenshots of the lies Microsoft is portraying.

Okay so here's where it starts getting bad. [bogus claims that gnu/linux won't work your ipod, do video chat, play World of Warcraft and so on]

If you have been paying attention, you know that the first slide is a lie. Windows 7 won't provide familiarity, choice, compatibility, or peace of mind, really. Windows 7 is a service pack for Vista that comes at a cost to your freedom and privacy. Best Buy is in for a world of hurt if they believe what Microsoft is telling them."
