So how do you feel about Microsoft getting involved with Linux. They first got some apps and word etc on *nix. Then they got Lindows deal going on wheich is just bleh. Then saw at the World Linux expo they having something to run Unix apps in Windows or maybe was run windows apps in unix, don't remember. Yet not all seem stable yet, much of Microsoft products are just never stable. So how you feel about Gates expanding.

I feel good for him, if he makes money off of the stupid people on the net, well, i feel proud for him. But i place my trust in the motivated people who d/l their own and install it them selfs.

Regards,

This is nothing new, they hired Torvolds a year and a half or so ago to do some consulting. Their going to come out with their own distro eventually...

Its kind of funny how they said that linux is a plague and will never last...

Maybe thier own or a hybrid of some sort. Or a windows OS with Linux compatability built in. Last interview I saw with Linus he was actualy sounding pro Microsoft...

heh watch them follow mac's idea and the new windows version is based off the linux kernel like OSX was based off BSD. Because now that mac has done that its getting tons of attention and it's sales have probably gone up a lot.

Under development? OSX installs with a XFree86 in addition to Aqua, or whatever the default window system is. Runs most x programs just fine.

Somehow I can't imagine a MS product coming out under the GPL.

Although... it would be awesome.
