Another Dead Distro: Turbolinux To Sign Deal With Microsoft

Microsoft and Turbolinux, a Tokyo-based Linux distributor up with a patent cross licensing deal and agreement to work more closely together. At present, Windows and Turbolinux machines on a mixed network can't access a common authentication database, but their deal should change this, said Noriko Otake, a spokeswoman for Turbolinux in Tokyo.

Yet another distro took the deal for FUD.

    Why Dead Distro ? Looks like its going to improve with Microsoft’s assistance.

    I did not even know turbolinux was still around. Any pub is good pub I guess. No intentions of using is regardless.

    Another distro to boycott. This goes against everything that GNU/Linux stands for. Say no to Novell/Suse, Linspire, and now TurboLinux!!

    You linix puppies marginalize linux with your short sighted attitudes!

    Thats why linux will stay a fringe system
