Micro$oft May Have Torpedoed Linux Deal

I just saw another one of THOSE headlines over on internetnews.com: Microsoft Denies Nigerian Linux Scam.

It seems that the Nigerian government was working out a deal to buy a whole mess of pc’s with Mandriva Linux as the OS… except that all of a sudden they’re going to be replacing the OS with Windows.

Excuse me but I can’t help thinking that the simple fact that Micro$oft is making plenty of noise about how they didn’t do anything wrong makes me suspicious right off the bat. My thought is that sooner or later we’ll find out that somebody there had the brilliant idea to squash that deal as part of their campaign to eventually take over the world’s operating system and software choices.
