The thing with windows is, though, once it gets some momentum, much larger
numbers of people are involved (it is an OS-project). But, yes, you are

github (of course, as they [ms] spent 8 billion dollars on the thing). The
8 billion dollars gives a good idea as to what extent ms is committed to
open source. There is also a rumor going round saying that ms bought github
for one reason only, and that is to get it's dirty little hands on this
