Microsoft kills its ‘Get the Facts’ anti-Linux site
It was a long time in coming. But Microsoft has finally acknowledged that its anti-Linux site had gone past the point of usefulness.
On August 23, Microsoft pulled plug on the “Get the Facts” site, replacing it with a new Windows Server “Compare” site.
The goal of the site is to offer more in-depth information and customer-to-customer opinions about many of the issues IT administrators face,” a company spokeswoman said. “It turns out people wanted 3rd party validation in addition to people’s experiences making OS purchasing decisions so in addition to customer case studies, research reports that compare platforms the site will also offer guidance around best practices, web casts, etc.”
