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."
