Microsoft is again using their monopoly to illegally force vendors to squash the competition.
In 2006, Microsoft put pressure on Wal-mart to stop selling Linux.
So now you are looking for Linux on netbooks and smart phones? Good luck! The chicken-hearted vendors at the TAITRA were afraid to anger Microsoft.
