I can think of some MVPs that have Linux envy, or awe at the least. They would
harp about the fake 'deal' of Microsoft and Novell.
The two platform are intrinsically different because of the jobs they were
built (in terms of architecture) to do. Windows, for example, was not built
for networking and multiple users. That was just glued on top (later on),
along with 'security'.
I'm not entirely sure what Microsoft will do after Vista. They seem to be
getting into the whole 'licensing' biz after failing to make money with
hardware (e.g. Zune, XBox, Surface). The chip-making dreams never materialised
and the same goes for Web services and advertisement.
It's not just about software anymore. Sooner or later Microsoft will have to
adopt someone else's (they intended to do this with Yahoo!, they may be doing
this with Hotmail and they certainly do this with FAST). Microsoft also sells
SUSE now, for profit.
