That is the best strategy. Although it is very tempting to bash the
competition, it is not a good practice because often it backfires:
when you attack a competing technology there's always a significant
risk of offending the people who use it.

One thing that Microsoft knows well is marketing, and historically
they never attacked the competition. The fact that recently they've
stopped ignoring Linux and went on the offensive against it is seen
as a sign of desperation by some analysts.
