Just to clarify, I think the problem isn't one of Microsoft malevolence
so much as OEMs taking the easy way out. Linux is too important to be
kicked off the boat everywhere, but this could be a problem for new OSes
yet to be created maybe.

I think the thing that is most important is that a healthy user group is
about its community, and the people who pitch in and make it a community
instead of a cabal or a company.
