Without a doubt, a lot of effort is put into creating and spreading the Big
Lie. Linux is far more widely used than the media would have us believe, for a
large number of reasons. It's easier when one controls the media and we've
seen situations where Microsoft **paid** companies to tweak statistics.
Remember the MSBBC's claim that only 400-600 Linux users visit the MSBBC Web
site. It was their tech chief who said this.
