Our friends over at Ostatic have posed a good question, one I’ve thought about in the past.

Canonical vs. Microsoft: Netbook Cat Fight

http://www.workswithu.com

The VAR Guy loves cat fights as much as the next guy. Jennifer Aniston vs. Angelina Jolie? Classic but a bit dated. Canonical vs. Microsoft? Not quite as sexy, but certainly timely and just as much fun. The latest spat involves Canonical dismissing Microsoft's claims in the netbook market.
