 Microsoft to push unlicensed users to Linux

With growth slowing as Microsoft saturates its core markets in developed countries, they are faced with a decision: do they struggle to slow the decline of market share or do they try to maximize profits?

Microsoft has long had a conflict of interest about software piracy. By pretending not to notice, they encouraged the use of unlicensed Microsoft software, thereby letting dependence on their formats, packages, and protocols grow. The time is approaching when that will change.
