Windows 10 will soon ship with a full, open source, GPLed Linux kernel

The new Windows Subsystem for Linux will use a real Linux kernel.

Didn't Steve Ballmer call Linux a cancer? I guess Windows now has cancer!

Apple also says if your phone uses a stylus, "you blew it"

Guess they blew it with the iPad Pro...... *wink* (in other words, just because a company said one thing in the past doesn't mean the viewpoints are the same today).

He was almost right. The world does not need more than 5 IBM computers. The world has been working on that ever since.
