Microsoft: ISVs are pawns – but don’t tell them!

More reasons to use Linux

See, now people always tell me that I am a conspiracy theorist against Microsoft. Alrighty, well, here’s yet another chance for you to see that I am more of a realist than you think.

When you see this, it will give you the willies, and I’d be surprised if you didn’t switch to Linux in a heartbeat.

Excerpt:

Microsoft:”First, the role of ISVs. ISVs- independent software vendors-are pawns in the struggle between platform vendors. They’re essential. So you can’t win without them, and you have to take good care of them. You can’t let them feel like they’re pawns in the struggle. You’re going out with a girl, what you really want to do is have a deep, close and intimate relationship, at least for one night. And, you know, you just can’t let her feel like that, because if you do, it ain’t going to happen, right. So you have to talk long term and white picket fence and all these other wonderful things, or else you’re never going to get what you’re really looking for. So you can’t let them feel like pawns, no matter how much they really are.”
