Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Microsoft Germany has been doing some soul searching regarding Linux, reports Germany's c't magazine. The company has been conducting telephone surveys of German journalists covering its own perceived image, but also including a large section specific to the Linux OS. MS wants to know what the strengths and weaknesses of Linux are, and what could interfere with its success. Among Microsoft's suggestions in this area (leading the witnesses - tsk) is lack of games. But on the plus side MS suggests developer enthusiasm as a major advantage for Linux. And its own image among German journalists? We don't seem to have the results here, but MS wants to know how it's rated, on a scale of 1-9, in a number of areas. Does it have high ethical requirements, for example. Is it a company you trust? Does it have clear visions? Is it, uh oh - arrogant? ®
