I thought M$ won their case (in a European court) and forced Lindows to change their name to Linspire.
That being said, Dvorak doesn't seem to be very clueful. Most of Windows instability results from bad device drivers. Why would I want to use a Windows driver on Linux and thereby destabilize my system?
Secondly, the device driver models of the two OS'es differ. Thus, the Dvorak solution would require some sort of "thunk" layer which would reduce efficiency.
Also, there's this whole PR thing. Who, in their right mind, would buy MS Linux? This is the same company that brought no end of security misery on the whole world with virus after virus, worm after worm, patch after patch, monopolist lock-in, and EULA hell. Only Dilbert's management team would purchase MS-Linux!
Doh! Okay... Microsoft wins :-(
