The Register -- MS admits its Linux-bashing jihad is a failure

Lot's of jargon here but Microsoft has been on a crusade to bash Linux, the major alternative to Windows, at corporations and government agencies. It hasn't worked. Linux software is "open" anyone can work on it and change it. The article implies that a Microsoft plan to create "shared source" software may work in the US but not in the more sophisticated rest of the world. Shared source is supposedly open but controlled by Microsoft.
