Lets hope this is again not a means to make MS slash prices and offer discounts.

Now Linux has matured so much that for general desktop usages its simply perfect. I just hope they take a decent distribution.
I hope they might go with Mandriva ( its French, isn't it ?).
At the same time its immeterial which Linux they choose, what matters is that their choice should be lasting.
