Thread: What would a "Linux" distro by Microsoft look like?

    What would a "Linux" distro by Microsoft look like?

    I was thinking about the various Linux distributions and wondered just
    what a Linux distributed by Microsoft might look like? Would it be
    open source, except for that "little bit in the corner", which is
    proprietary? Would it require on-line licensing before working? Would
    one be permitted to make 10,000 copies and give them away for free?

    Microsoft *could* make a deal of money just by providing the kinds of
    things it has done well at in the past, such as packaging, and acting
    as "honest broker" for the thousands of developers around the world
    who maintain Linux for nothing.
