    Interesting that I had also read that news earlier today probably because I am always reading Linux news. Also it's true they are very late with this. I can forsee a few Linux Distros incorporating the rverse of this and that would be the Linux Distro adoption of MS code sanboxed and doing what WINE does but doing it correctly and making Windows as we know it obsolete and instead of Windows being the primary OS around the globe it would be many Linux Distros with the adoption of MS hardware code (DX etc) using Direct X for the gamers. That is really the only roadblock. Gaming.

    This is very interesting.

    I do a lot of video work, and none of the programs I use run well in Linux, even using WINE. There's some good stuff, and I recently downloaded Blender, which looks promising.

    Plus, I tried using the WINE IE, and there's some stuff that one of the companies I contract in that will only run in IE, in Windows, so if this could work, I would probably be exclusively on Linux...though maybe I'd start to look at some other OS. ;]
