Microsoft (Obviously) Claims Google Employees Would Be Better Off Sticking With Windows

Microsoft really didn't like that a Google employee went public, telling the world the big G is swapping employees' computers from Windows to Chrome, OS X and Linux. They've responded in a particularly sarky way, calling it "ironic":

Windows communications manager Brandon LeBlanc retorted via a corporate blog post:

"Would it make any difference if the victims were running Linux or any other operating system if an attacker builds such a sophisticated profile? Not remotely. Linux, Windows, Mac, whatever – everything has weaknesses. Especially the users of those systems."

Ooh! Smackdown. I can feel their wrath from here (not to mention hear the hurt crackling in their voices). He went on to say that "even hackers admit we're doing a better job making our products more secure than anyone else", despite the Pwn2Own hacking winner claiming otherwise.
