The Linux Foundation doesn't want to beat Microsoft, apparently.

Why should the big corporations want Microsoft to go belly up? As long as Microsoft can pull the wool over everybody with their billions spent on advertisements, and people continue to pay the Microsoft tax unwittingly on new computers, Microsoft is collecting huge revenue which they can pay their allies to thwart the spread of GNU/Linux on the desktop.

That's the problem when you have someone who doesn't hold freedom as his top priority in charge of such a project as the Linux Kernel. Microsoft remains on top of the world.
