Turbolinux Goes Microsoft
Turbolinux, a major presence in the Asian Linux market, inked a deal today with Microsoft, to provide the ever-popular “patent assurances” as well as access to Live Search and a planned cross-platform login. The deal apparently centers around a plan to provide single-login functionality for both Windows and Linux, allowing a single user login to transfer between platforms.
Turbolinux executives are bragging that the deal makes them "the Linux distribution that works best with Microsoft," a dubious distinction indeed.
