Ubuntu Won’t Moan To EU About Microsoft

Barence writes “The company behind the Ubuntu Linux distro says it has no plans to follow Opera’s lead and file a complaint against Microsoft to the EU. Ubuntu 10.10 is the most ‘consumer-friendly’ version of the Linux distro to date, but it faces an uphill battle against Microsoft’s marketing machine. Even high-profile supporter Dell has dropped Ubuntu machines from its website in recent months, while continuing to remind visitors that ‘Dell recommends Windows 7′ at the top of every PC page. ‘I don’t think we’ve ever considered [an EU complaint],’ said Steve George, vice president of business development at Canonical. ‘The improvements we’re making to Ubunutu … are a better route for us to reach out to users and get a bigger user base.’”
