An interesting idea but I don’t know. Microsoft did finally fold and made an android smartphone. Maybe that will be an even closer glimpse of them harnessing linux systems to run their own software. It would definitely be an interesting idea but I do always worry about the continued creep of companies like Microsoft onto linux and the implications on the free angle of linux.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Linux is a family of open source Unix-like operating systems based on the Linux kernel, an operating system kernel first released on September 17, 1991 by Linus Torvalds. Linux is typically packaged in a Linux distribution (or distro for short).

Distributions include the Linux kernel and supporting system software and libraries, many of which are provided by the GNU Project. Many Linux distributions use the word “Linux” in their name, but the Free Software Foundation uses the name GNU/Linux to emphasize the importance of GNU software, causing some controversy.
