Did you think Linux was costing Microsoft truckloads of money? Think again.
The real bleeder over in Redmond is Windows itself. The endless number of illegal copies of the operating systems is costing the software maker a fortune in missed revenues. So Microsoft will start requiring proof from users that they acquired their software legally. Otherwise they won't be able to download software patches and updates.
This whole plan is nothing short of genius. Microsoft first created an operating system that excels in its level of non-security. Now it has found a way to use that fact to battle software piracy.
Who said that Microsoft couldn't innovate?
