    Of course you can, if the proprietary stuff is outside the kernel itself (last I looked the Ubuntu software center sold proprietary apps, and one of the most widely recalled commercial examples using Linux under a proprietary app may be TiVo) or the stuff itself is never shipped outside the organization (either internal work product, or even xxxAAS cloud based solutions).

      Call Pottering. Maybe he'll put it in systemd.

        It isn't because it has attached to something or mapped something else?
        Because I simply cannot see how a text based process monitor eats 0.5GB RAM.
        Yes, it should be 5MB at most for what it is actually doing.

          All the mega companies out there build their proprietary stuff and their business on top of Linux, and the GPLv2 has been the best ally of proprietary software so far...

            I obviously meant Microsoft wouldn't be able to use it the way they need it: extending it to run whatever proprietary stuff they need.
            Then again, judging by the number of posts that didn't get what I meant, maybe it wasn't so obvious?

              This is a great tool for windows. I have often used it.
              Reminds me of snoopdos for the Amiga :

              Looking forward to trying it out.

                Whether you like the message or not, it is just as relevant today as it was 20 years ago. Microsoft's track record speaks for itself in this regard.

                  The biggest error of GPLv2 was not having a patent grant clause.

                    First, Procmon does not do what htop does. It's not a performance tool. Procmon is more like an advanced system wide strace, with non-destructive filters, which explains the memory usage.

                      It would be pretty cool move if Microsoft bought Canonical/Ubuntu one day and then made the backend of windows just Linux. Solve allot of problems.
                      I don't see how Microsoft would be able to just claim all open-source projects as their own, that is the fear some people have, but we will see....

                      Ultimately I hate Windows but am forced to use it because multitude of apps and devices I have cannot function under Linux at this point in time, sadly.
                      By the time Linux catches up I could be too old to care, too busy preparing for my funeral.. lol j/k
