Sadly the world has changed such that you can't make money selling an OS anymore. They may want to do the whole 'join our cloud, or else' thing; but, even if they don't, they have little choice. Blame Google for all of this. When they finally figured out how to get ridiculously rich, without hardly any obligations to anyone for it, and of course by making their users their product, what was the last bird in the coffin under the bridge for companies at that level who actually wanted to sell software products.

We are heading straight back to the mainframe and dumb terminal (no matter how pretty the UI is on the terminal now.)
