Microsoft tries to seduce Linux users

Today a lot of news site focus on Yahoo!'s earnings and they almost skip the fact, reported on eWeek (via Yahoo! News), that Microsoft has launched a campaign to target Linux users. The campaign, running both on and offline, is designed to give customers information about the advantages of using Windows over its open-source competitor.

It's interesting they are doing it, but I'm not sure about the results they can reach. Open-source lovers are difficult to seduce, most of all it the "gigolo" is named Microsoft.
