Microsoft recommends Ubuntu
Ubuntu Desktop appeared yesterday in the BIOS & System Update Downloads section of Microsoft’s Windows Marketplace website. Description of the open-source (and therefore absolutely free) Linux-based operating system has been removed by Microsoft the same day, but this page is still available in Google cache. It’s quite funny to see Microsoft recommends free Linux OS:
Note: This is the desktop version of Ubuntu. Ubuntu is a community developed operating system that is perfect for laptops, desktops, and servers. Whether you use it at home, at school or at work Ubuntu contains all the applications you’ll ever need, from word processing and e-mail applications, to Web server software and programming tools. Ubuntu is and always will be free of charge. You do not pay any licensing fees. You can download, use and share Ubuntu with your friends, family, school or business for absolutely nothing. Version 7.04, named “Feisty Fawn,” adds the Ubuntu Studio, a multimedia editing and production suite, to the distribution.
