>Yes, Alan, Microsoft will try to use any option available to counter any possible threat to their sales prospects. We do not have "Windows 8" yet due to instability problems, "Windows Vista" was not a commercial success. Ubuntu 12.04 works, without Microsoft help !  Maybe progress seems slow at times, but open-source is not profit related, and may legally copied unlimited times, potentially saving business, including educational ones, thousands. Failure to disclose interest at a meeting can be illegal in some instances, Microsoft seem to be willing to use any means possible to preserve their monopoly. What next, a Microsoft bid for Canonical ?
