    What the f*** is up with M$ Linux


    I am on the internet searching around and guess what I find a link for a distro of Linux created by none other than Miroflop then there is the outrageous price and licensing aggrement

    How do I get MS Linux?

    We are now offering the MS Linux Introductory CD at a special introductory price of only $249.99 (plus shipping and handling), if you order before it ships.

    MS Linux is released under the provisions of the Gates Private License, which means you can freely use this Software on a single machine without warranty after having paid the purchase price and annual renewal fees.
    What the hell is Microsoft trying to pull here?

    LOL!!! It's a big joke. That was on here a while ago. Read the interviews on the right. One is by Bill Gates reading something like "Who the hell are you people?"

    No it's not...I'm running M$ Linux on all of my boxen right now. Though it cost me about $1K, the TCO is still less than normal Linux because BillG said so.
