Ranger Rick Redux

Tired of Microsoft's pointlessly stupid marketing tactics? Tired of executives and marketing shills spouting things that general public would laugh at?

Microsoft Security -- isn't that a contradiction in terms? Well, not if you're an executive, and that's the only product your company has to offer.

What you do, if you're of that mind-set, might be comical if the damage wasn't so intense (billions of dollars lost every year to Microsoft's careless lack of security concepts in their operating systems).

Here's my take at

Instead of being tired of it, I ran the thing through a reverse marketing mind-set. That's where you take the believable lies about Microsoft products, and make them into truths about Linux. Bonus points are awarded for truths that are funny at the same time.

Some things never change. Maybe they need another "myth" to debunk -- how about that one about the sun setting in the West...
