Does Microsoft own all or part of TechRepublic? Of not, do TechRepublic's owners have vested interests in the business health of Microsoft?

IS or isn't MS a major topic in tech?

by jdclyde In reply to TechRepublic ownership

With a lot of companies running MS products, it is relevant to discuss the MS products.

Just like any product out there, some people will "like" one product over another, although to often people will say they like one product over another while they are to stupid or dishonest to admit that they don't KNOW anything other than the one product as so are not in a position to make an informed decision. I don't think that is the case of the TR writers.

As for the promo's and ads, any company that decides to purchase ads has the same ability to get on TR. Maybe you should ask why it is your product of choice isn't investing in advertising on places like TR?

What are you implying?

by JamesRL In reply to TechRepublic ownership

MS is always in the news, since it is the predominant OS in the PC world and their products impact a huge portion of business and consumers.

I do not see a bias on here - certainly the members here bash MS all the time (for good reason) and TR itself does not interfere at all. And I am no MS fanboy, nor am I a Linux god.

Crying in his cheerios

by jdclyde In reply to What are you implying?

If you look at his past comments, he is clearly not a fan of MS products in any form, yet he complains about the waste of his time reading articles clearly labeled to discuss MS products.

He is just looking to have something to cry about, or looking for a new way to MS bash, or both.

His choice, but it seems silly to read MS articles after stating that if you use ms products you either don't know about open source or you have too much money.
