Clarification: I predicted they would "give it away" - and that was in
quotes because I meant it broadly, either by making it a free download or
by always bundling it with other things they charge money for.  I think
they'd sooner pick up Linux and derive a "Windows/LX" from it before
releasing the source code to Windows under an open source license.  :)
