I tend to disagree with you on this.

Microsoft signed up for a service to offload a DDOS attack against them.

That company happens to use linux.  

Akami has the resources and bandwidth to distribute that DDOS attack,
where Microsoft doesn't have that type of bandwidtch and distributed
resources to survive that.
