It's quite possible it's deliberate on Microsoft's part. It's not like they don't have a history of deliberately screwing up stuff done by others.

That said...

The next time you hear The Rolling Stones' "Start Me Up" on the radio, that song was commissioned by Microsoft for the launch of Windows 95.

They wanted so desperately to be trendy and hip like Apple, and they keep failing at it. So, incompetence. (After all, it is a hallmark of Microsoft.)
Everything is in hand. With this tapestry... and with patience, there is nothing one cannot achieve.

Linux does things totally different then the way Windows does. So it is no surprised that Microsoft is having problems with their Linux distro.

Actually there are many huge corporations that contribute to the Linux Project and there have been for years. MS is one of the biggest contributors. So it's not like they're that unfamiliar.

And to suggest it was sabotage is just your everyday tinfoil hat ignorance.

Or, it could be that Portreve is simply familiar with Microsoft's past history.
