text which not so subtly, tries to provoke an attitude that anything
but Windows is of junior quality and usefulness. Of course, these
days when all the world's top supercomputers run Linux and none of
them Windows, one can reasonably question that, and maybe Microsoft
is (beginning to) notice this. And in their way, respond. I see it
in Ars Technica.
Namely, a piece by Peter Bright, "Windows Defender to start removing
"optimizer" scareware," dated 2018 Jan 31 there. It looks to me like
Microsoft has figured out they aren't one of the Big Boys any more,
and are infusing a little reality-based rationality into some of their
PR. Scareware out, common sense in.
But I think they can't catch-up to Linux. I wonder what they'll do
over the longer run, to stay in business? ??
