The article:
http://www.theregister.co.uk/content/1/11730.html

has some very interesting points. Namely, should open-source software fear the
looming MS breakup? MS Office for Linux could certainly give current Linux
office suits (StarOffice, etc) a run for thier money (even though StarOffice
is free, the Office name could spell trouble.). 

Of course there is a postive side to such a product that The Reg. fails to 
mention. If MS makes Office for Linux, they'll most likely have to fix the
problems many window managers have, like standard clipboard usuage and
implimentation for example.

Lets just hope they don't embrace and extend an MS Linux...
