Microsoft tactics push India toward Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| One of India's 28 states plans to distribute 100,000 Linux laptops to
| students there. It sounds like Tamil Nadu's volume purchasing agent decided
| to use Linux exclusively after being put off by Microsoft's bundling tactics
| for academic users.
|
| [...]
|
| Though it could be sour grapes at having its unbundled OS proposal scuppered
| by Microsoft, ELCOT now says it recommends only Linux. On its website, the
| organization says, "ELCOT has been using SUSE Linux and Ubuntu Linux
| operating systems on desktop and laptop computers numbering over 2,000 during
| the past two years and found them far superior as compared to other operating
| systems, notably the Microsoft Operating System."
