    Not only Linux and Windows, but all OSes...so they're basically looking to set a standard for web commerce similar to java. Something OS inspecific.

    Now M$ supposedly *does* have a Linux computer lab or something thereabouts at the HQ in Redmond...just for research purposes, of course...

    personally i can see bill gates running linux on his personal computers cause anyway you look at it he is still a computer geek and prolly loves the challange. he is jst like use except he pushes windows and not linux.
    but thats my 2 cents

    I'm sure they have that linux lab so they can find ways to use linux features in windows
