Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu "There's a rumour circulating that Ubuntu is in discussions with Microsoft aimed at an agreement along the lines they have concluded recently with Linspire, Xandros, Novell, etc. For the record, let me state my position, and I think this is also roughly the position of Canonical and the Ubuntu Community Council though I haven't caucused with the CC on this specifically. We have declined to discuss any agreement with Microsoft under the threat of unspecified patent infringements."

I think ubuntu and redhat have painted themselves in a corner that they can never really come out and say that they would also love to take Microsoft's money.


Distros like Xandros and Linspire are already the bad guys of the Linux industry - so for them to get into bed with Microsoft is a no brainer.
