Microsoft to port 3 Classics to Linux
In a bold statement today, Microsoft President and CEO Steve Ballmer announced the immediate release of Hover, Minesweeper and Solitaire for the Linux operating system. "Releasing these favorites falls into Microsoft's 'embrace and extend' strategy, and we hope that people using Linux will enjoy them. Once Linux becomes a dependable, reliable operating system, we may release more games that won't tax the system so thoroughly."
