On the latest news from Munich that they are thinking of leaving Linux behind to return to Microsoft Windows, I guarantee you that this did not happen in a vacuum. It was certainly pushed there by Microsoft interests. I hear enough of the goings on of things in Munich to know that there is still that element in the picture there.

Now, even if Munich stays with Linux (which I suspect ultimately they will), those Microsoft interests will have achieved their goal: fear, uncertainty and doubt around Munich's Linux success.

Not a single publication will carry the non-story "Munich stays with Linux after nothing happens after they say they might be leaving Linux". Damage done.

See how this works?

Maybe Free software advocates should go around ensuring that every Microsoft-using organization which is considering Linux gets a press release. Who cares if they actually make the move, obviously the goal is simple FUD, right?
