I asked a Microsoft guy about this and he said the because Linux
can't do the graphics that other Unicies and (as he pointed to the large
screen) Windows can do, they cannot port it to Linux. ???????! I always
thought that X was X, but MS must make it more complex. When I said,
"But I thought X was just plain X." He said that no, Linux just doesn't
have the capability. Whatever. I think MS is afraid of Linux.
