>Microsoft tries to bribe Nigeria out of using Linux

10:51 AM


Microsoft has denied paying a Nigerian contractor US$400,000 in a bid to battle Linux's movement into the government sector.

Media reports alleged that Microsoft had proposed paying the sum to a government contractor under a joint marketing agreement last year in order to persuade the contractor to replace Linux OS with Windows OS on thousands of school laptops.

The story basically goes like this: Microsoft offered, but the client turned them down because they had their heart set on Linux.

Doesn't sound like they got the story too wrong to me.
