Lindows does not share OSS spirit, doomed to fail

You can't go up against Microsoft using their own tactics. Like someone has said, Microsoft generates its own gravity and reality (the dark side of the force) and while it's already very hard to defeat it by using its own tactics, trying the inept cannot-decide-which-is-which mix of closed and open source Lindows seems to be practicing is even less likely to succeed. At least Be had the honesty to stick to the closed source path.

If I want to run Windoze apps, I'll add $100 more to my $99 and get the real thing - Windows XP.
