Maybe Micro$oft is seeing the value of Linux?
Another interesting article on it... Steve Balmer's comment 15 years ago about linux being a cancer aside...

Reason for that is that they want to get rid of windows as an OS and only want to make it a window manager for linux.
Same profit, less development work.
Preceeding news for that:
MS spins own linux distro to replace its windows servers.
MS packs linux libs so that you can start linux binaries on windows.
5 Years in the future: Windows becomes a linux distro similar to android.

Developer can make a harmful code and build a deb and place on Internet. Any person can download it and install as exe. I think Linux was safe due to market desktop minority and distributions diversity...
Not to belabor the issue but "place it on the internet" isn't quite the same as "place it in the repositories", right? So for we timid Linux users, that won't be quite so dangerous. Or am I missing something (likely I am)?
