Microsoft trains Best Buy Linux assassins

A whistle-blower over on Overclock.net has posted details of how Best Buy staff are trained to counter buyers’ interest in the Linux operating system. A forum member identifying themselves as GodofGrunts posted a series of screenshots from the "Linux vs Windows 7" module of Microsoft's ExpertZone training package.

As I worked my way through the screenshots I was disturbed by the increasing amounts of FUD that was being used under the guise of "information" to discredit Linux.
