Ubuntu have no plans to complain about Microsoft

Canonical have no plans to complain about anti-competitive behaviour by Microsoft to the European Union, the vice president of business development at Canonical has told PC Pro.

Asked whether Canonical had any intentions making a similar complaint to to that made by web browser Opera – which saw Microsoft forced to offer a ‘browser ballot’ to EU Windows users – Steve George said he doesn’t believe it has ever been considered, citing the positive progress Ubuntu is making as a ‘better route to reach out to users’ and grow the user base.

Whilst he notes that Microsoft has ‘much more marketing muscle’ he adds that “The strength in Ubuntu is our community and reach – through advocates who can spread the message.”

“We have to find different ways of getting our message out.”
