MS @ LinuxWorld Expo


Linux Today and Slashdot are reporting that MS has purchased a booth a LinuxWorld Expo.

Leading to rumors of MS-Linux again.
I say it's not MS-Linux but MS-BSD?

Considering that Apple OSX is +/- FreeBSD.
And that MS already has a native port of Office for OSX.

Is it really far fetched to think that MS could or wouldn't produce thier own verson of "OSX" in order to counter
OS-X and Linux?
