I have to agree - this might happen some day. When Hell freezes over!!
Seriously, Microsoft has no reason to it. The Microsoft fanboys will
still purchase Windows no matter how insecure or unstable it is.
Because, to alot of them, Linux just screams "HARDDD!!!" and they
don't want to take the time to learn it. Does this guy honestly think
Bill Gates is just gonna open source it? Man...
But lets just imagine if this did happen. The world would, literally,
change forever. Even people who have no interest in how the OS works,
they'd be effected. There'd be dozens and even hundreds of spinoffs
(www.windowsdistrowatch.com OMG can you imagine?!) of it and it would
be chaos. Microsoft would instantly regret the decision as the Linux
zealots would get their sometimes "grubby" (no offence) paws into it
and start changing it all around.
As cool as it would be -- in reality - who really wants opensource Windows? O_o
