    Pretty cool. The fit-PC came out about 2009, which makes it outdated in most respects.(I was curious if I could find one .) But another great thing about Linux is that it doesn't recognise planned...

    MS is funny. They make small advances in their software and then shoot themselves in the foot with DRM and privacy issues.

    It isn't as altruistic as it seems on the surface.
    I don't think MS *does* altruistic.
    It sounds like they're worried about security holes and seeking volunteer (free) help in bug fixing.
