Here's the part that confuses me:
Microsoft has more money than God. Some time in the future, they're going to see that the tipping point has been reached and Linux is going to overthrow Windows (assuming they don't suddenly do some extreme innovating in Windows and block us with patents).
Now, here's the most likely scenario for when that happens: Microsoft buys Novell lock-stock-and-barrell, and begins to hawk "Windows Linux" and takes back the market from Redhat, Ubuntu, Mandriva and the also-rans.
Yeah... that was supposed to make you mad. The real challenge is: how do you procede with the OS such that the market can never be dominated by one company?
That must be the goal, right? Everyone loved Windows before it was the 800lb gorrilla. Well... except us Mac and Amiga users. heheh
