We have seen how the news pointed to the sons of Steve Ballmer (current CEO of Microsoft) using Apple products, the competition of their father ... But there is another rumor about the possibility that Bill Gates (former and founder of Microsoft) has acknowledged that his children use Linux. We have also heard that certain Microsoft workers used devices from competing companies, but this is even stronger. We have even been able to certify that Microsoft has contributed code to the Linux kernel.
El rumor What has been read on the networks does not make the source very clear and there is no very accurate evidence, so we have to take it with tweezers and be careful in its veracity. But if confirmed, it would be quite striking news, even though it is not new.
Some sources claim that Bill Gates said In an interview:
“I understand that a product like Windows may not be accepted by the entire market, and people who are not satisfied decide to look for other alternatives. Even, I must admit, that my children use Ubuntu on their PCs. But Windows has a huge acceptance in 90% of the market, and that is a proof that the product is impeccable. "
The piece of original text is the following: “I understand that a product like Windows can not be accepted by the entire market, and people who are not satisfied decide to seek other alternatives. Even I must admit that my children use Ubuntu on ther PCs. But Windows has a huge acceptance in 90% of the market, and that's a sign that the product is impeccable. ”.
I repeat, it is a rumor and we cannot accept it as true. If confirmed, it would be a noticia notorious, but for the moment we must doubt it and remain with uncertainty. What is your opinion?

As if they use OSEK, it would be further that you cannot use an operating system just because you are Gates' son, that shows that intelligent people do not have closed eyes.
I hope they put lines of code in the kernel and leave holes in it like their winbug and if it seems to me that the children of gates use linuix they do know what is good
Of course they use third-party software, they do it to perfect their own, seek ideas and look at things from different perspectives
