Microsoft is actively malicious; merely being big is not sufficient to
make a valid comparison. c.f. Google.

Canonical is not malicious. I do think, however, that the moves to
Mono and Bing! search and proprietary software for sale are
potentially very stupid. I'm thinking of Linspire and Xandros here.
