Uhmmm

Xp already contains from some code from linux, Back when Linspire was lindows, Microsoft sued them (Lost too for a matter of fact) So lindows changed their name and also offered some code from the linux core programs like cd for changing the directory, and also mkdir for making directories, needless to say it's already been done Blum

I hope you weren't being serious because Windows doesn't contain any code from Windows in those programs. Having a program with the same NAME isn't the same as "reusing code". Besides, "cd" and "mkdir" were in unix and ms-dos WAY before Linux even existed.

Wow, I didn't know.

They are not long for the world.
No one leaves; line up for inevitable wipeout.
