The Mandriva Microsoft War Goes On

Anyone following the tech news over the last two weeks couldn’t help but miss a Mandriva employee stalking just about every site out there to try and get the news out that Microsoft had horned in on their Linux PC order for the Nigerian government by pushing them to install Microsoft products on all their PC’s. Now the war continues to drag on with elements of the Nigerian government overruling the decision while Microsoft flails on insisting that Nigeria needs Microsoft. OS wars are almost as tedious as format wars, but Microsoft has made it its sovereign mission to do its best to force its OS on every single human being on earth and if that means invading Nigeria and forcing an impoverished country to pay for XP, Steve Ballmer is down with that. You actually have to wonder how much of Bill Gates’ supposed charitable ventures in Africa are about using the carrot to sell Microsoft products after all.
