    No one would.. It would have to be forgiveable loans, and outright honest donations..
    The corporate money world hasn't got what it takes to do that... It don't have a clue about love and reality, and honesty, for the most part...

    BUT! if the corporate made its host Strong, it could again be Strong for having repaired its support structure and base... Its base is crumbling.. humanity is in a nose dive.. and still the baby suckles like there's no tomorrow.. is why there's no tomorrow... It like "snakey eating his self"...

    If Microsoft put out a linux version, they would have to make their own kernel, bercause you can bet they wouldn't let it be open source.

    You know Linus Torvalds got corporate money while he was working on Linux? I don't think he's the only linux developer who got corporate money for its work...

    The corporate world needs to understand that it's us hoards of little people who they get their money from...
    They need to strengthen us, to have strengthened their base, because without our money they are nothing... And without their support we are nothing... Two nothings do not make a something...

    What would really make linux take off? IMHO manufacturers would need to start installing a beginner friendly version of linux, such as Ubuntu, Mint, etc. and selling the units cheaper than the Windows counterparts. Most people are cheap, and for a $100 difference many would try linux and get hooked.
