    Back in Windows 3.5 (server/workstation) they were POSIX compatible. They also made sure they worked with Novel, even though it was competition. They needed to be compatible with as much as possible. Once they became the king of the hill they were able to 'feck off' everyone and say now you come to us. But now they're in trouble. There's so much Linux in the Enterprise now and I don't think any phones have Windows on them anymore. So they're becoming less relevant and they know it and they have to find ways to bring people back. I think this is one of those attempts. 'Hey look, you can run your Linux apps on Windows'. Yeah, like we'd want to. LOL.
