    Because billions of man hours have already been spent on Linux and it's free to use and steal and You don't even have to follow the terms of the license if you're in china or russia.

        I work in a Russian tech company, and it's not that fricking simple. If you are unaffiliated with the government (and most large tech companies are) then you cannot pirate enterprise or server licenses because there is STILL a rightsholder company present in Russia that enforces the licensing laws for Microsoft products.
        And at the same time you cannot buy the licenses you have to buy, so get fricked.
        State companies, of course, can ignore all of that and just do whatever they want. But the rest of us cannot.
        Oh and the rightsholder company in question is apparently itself a government affiliated company. There even exist rumors that this company is behind the develooment of our Linux variations, and the whole thing is a shakedown for small and medium businesses
        "Buy our Linux licenses so that we let you pirate windows in peace."
        Shit's shady and slimy.

          wut?
          You do realize they're legally obligated to share the source for those with no strings attached (other than the obligation to share the source derivatives.)

          People in sane countries pay to have work done on Linux they don't pay for a copy of it, that's extremely moronic.

            Lol, xaxa even.
            Are you talking about gnu license? The one everyone's been ignoring all over the world for decades now?
            They can even comply with it by simply giving you the source code for the kernel itself, and closing everything that they put on top of it, which is what they are doing.

      US corpos and universities certainly won't be creating new OSes with the amount of administrative rot that's set in.

    morons for some reason dont realize that russia and china are not some npc villains, they are normaflag losers just like normalgay losers in US/EU that dont want to learn anything new and prefer sticking to windows or in niche cases linux if privacy is really needed. there's zero reason to try and compete with sillicon valley because thats instantly a losing game and just money down the drain.

    They both have state-sponsored Linux distros, but nobody uses them because Linux is inferior to Windows for most purposes and there's no incentive to improve it when Windows is fine and easy to pirate.

    Tbh, I don't think modern day Microsoft or Apple would be capable of creating an OS from scratch either.

      But Apple did not create their current OS. They forked NeXTSTEP, which was a fork of some BSD distro. The one time they made an OS from scratch, it was shit.

    They have, similar to North Korea's Red Star OS it's just a crappy Linux Distro.
    If you use Linux, you are literally communist.
