Ubuntu Leader Praises Windows, Wants its Customers

,----[ Quote ]
| Mark Shuttleworth, leader of the Ubuntu development community, offers kind 
| words for Microsoft's Windows - - but sounds more like someone who is 
| plotting to steal customers away from the Windows platform.  
| 
| In a blog item titled, "Playing nicely with Windows," Shuttleworth calls 
| Windows "an important platform," and then praises an open-source application  
| called WUBI that allows Ubuntu to be installed onto a Windows PC. What makes 
| WUBI different than other technology is that, instead of creating a virtual 
| machine or installing Ubuntu into a partition, it installs the Linux OS into 
| a file on the PC.
