Exactly - micoshaft stock is sinking again while Google and other Linux
companies rising. If micoshaft is paying for manipulated Linux uptake
and not reporting the correct linux uptake in their SEC filings, then
investors are being misled. For companies like Micohsaft, these are
billion dollar matters and they should play close attention
to what investors may end up loosing because all that egg is coming
to land right on their door step.
