This weeks Whimpo-Dorko Award Goes to Stuart Cohen and the OSDL.


eWeek magazine reports that at LinuxWorld last month, Microsoft approached the Open Source Development Labs about conducting a jointly funded research study to compare Linux and Windows.


In typical mealy Slashdot fashion, OSDL CEO Stuart Cohen whined ….


“Microsoft could probably find one negative line on Linux in a 100-page research report that it would spend $10 million marketing while ignoring the other 99 pages,” he said. “Why would OSDL want to participate in that?””


Yup, and the moon might be made of Cheese !


I guess Stuart and the OSDL already KNEW what the results of a JOINT study would be.


If they keep doing isolated results they can keep spin-doctoring the results!


Just one more proof point that Linus does not offer a COMMERCIALLY VIABLE business alternative. Even Linux’s most vocal advocates run from a head to head coparison.


OK Slashdotters – let the onslaught begin!
