Where do the Google bashing come from?

Im pretty intrigued by the Google bashing that started this fall. In my case i first saw it from my usual friends, the wonderful astroturfers at idg. All of a sudden Google was the epitome of evil and voe upon us if Google wasn't destroyed immediately.

Ofcourse that sparked my curiosity, why all of a sudden did the astroturfing machine turn against Google instead of the usual Linux lambasting?

Well, i googled around and found this little gem at digitaldaily.


Well what do you know, Google has moved up onto MS kill list, at roughly the same time a smear campaign started.

I think this is going to be a tough nut to crack for Microsoft. Mostly because there really isnt much to complain about when it comes to Google so far. That the worst thing they can come up with is pointing their finger and saying -"Google has almost as bad privacy policies as ours!" speaks volumes.
