I wonder how Microsoft figures that they can use Linux as an entry point to Windows? Who would want to trade a stable OS with applications that are free or reasonably priced, for one that is buggy, crashes all the time, and costs way too much? Especially when Windows is getting more so (buggy, etc) all the time?
