After the unexpected Microsoft Linux a few years ago, Microsoft again is in the news because there are rumours about how Bill Gates might switch to Linux in a few months. It's said that he's tired of all the blue screens that his beta Longhorn installation is giving him and his favourite games refuse to run in a Trusted Computing environment. Since his games work great with Cedega on Linux, he's considering a switch to the Open Source operating system.
The industry is baffled, since for years, Gates has been claiming that Linux doesn't compare favourably to Microsoft's own operating system, Windows. Which distribution he might use is still uncertain, although sources tell us he might consider Ubuntu and Mandriva.
The power of might is mighty indeed.
