Writing a blog about Linux, and in particular posts about Microsoft issues is probably about the easiest thing to do.  There are so many stories around the net.  Be it disgruntled customers complaining about a product, one of MS’s “great new innovations” or an MS-Shill who doesnt really have a clue and just copy/pastes from a PR sheet.

I hope all readers are checking out Microsoft-Watch! the site that is now probably more pro-opensource than Linux.com!

Right, onto the first piece of news that will probably have Steve Ballmer breaking out in a sweat.  The BBC has commisioned work in a DRM free on demand project for Linux users, and they’ve chosen to work with the Ubuntu team!  You can read the official word over on the BBC Blog! So click here!

Next up, if anyone ever hears an MS Agent refer to WIndows security, be so kind as to refer them HERE and ask them to comment!  It appears that approximately 500,000 users have had their credit/debit card numbers stolen by a nasty virus that has been described as being “one of the most advanced pieces of crimeware ever created”. You can read about that article here Its been reported by the BBC.  Is that the reason why they are looking at open source? Or is it just a coincidence?

As always, Id love to hear your comments.  MS-Shillers welcome.
