Unfortunately, Microsoft spends probably $100 million every year
specifically spreading this kind of disinformation about Linux and Free
Software. It's hard to go tit-for-tat against that.

While it's hard to keep up with every new variation on the same basic
lie, for our purposes, it's probably useful to point to the widespread
use of Linux and Free Software by IBM, NASA, DoD, and other
high-prestige companies/agencies.
