Microsoft attempts to catch up

Realizing the world isn't waiting for them, our friends in Redmond have decided to get in on the blog thing. You can now have Microsoft host your blog. But, unlike the free speech adovocates at Blogger (bless you, Bloggermen and Bloggerwomen), it seems that certain terms are banned by our friends in the Pacific Northwest. I guess when you're the biggest, you can lock out those folks who want to publish a blog all about Vladimir Nabokov's novel Lolita.

On another front, our friends over at Linspire are stirring it up with a deal made with Wal-mart. Oh, I just love pitting one big guy against another. The folks in Redmond are not taking this one sitting down, however; they want to get the word out that Windows is just plain better than Linux.

Sure. Just like "spaces" is better than "blogger."

Not.
