    Is there any distro or desktop environment that uses MAUI applications as basis?

      Microsoft also have a UI framework called MAUI.
      .NET Multi-platform App UI (.NET MAUI) lets you build native apps using a .NET cross-platform UI toolkit that targets the mobile and desktop form factors on Android, iOS, macOS, Windows, and Tizen.

        They should send a cease and desist letter to MS.

          KDE - through blue systems if I remember correctly - holds the trademark to the name in regards to being a UI framework, so Microsoft will probably have to rebrand if they want to start selling anything using their framework.

            Um, yeah. This already basically happened.


            I don't think a C & D letter was involved, because that's something you do before filing a lawsuit. There's no way any KDE people have the resources to take on MS' legal team, as all concerned will be aware.

              Stop that nonsese already! People always keep spreading that kind of FUD. It doesn't matter if KDE has 2 lawyers or 100 like Microsoft, the judge (and jury, if the case is handled in the US or Belgium) will base his/her decision based on what the law says. He/She's not going to favor Microsoft just because they have more lawyers.

                Nitrux: https://nxos.org/
                “Nitrux is a Linux desktop distribution directly based on Debian. It uses the Calamares installer and includes NX Desktop and NX Firewall on top of the KDE Plasma 5 desktop environment and MauiKit Applications.”

                  Yes and no. It is not just more lawyers, but better ones. Having a big team digging information and manipulating it to their needs 24/7, until the case is closed, always put the small guys at disadvantage in court. As countless cases in where rich people are involved, money do talk in the justice system, anywhere in the world. Just look at that Samsung dude that just got released in less than half his sentence in South Korea. Or look at the past, where MS financially helped SCO to take IBM into courts for years and years. Those two only happened because rivers of money where put into lawyers accounts.

                    Again: the judge has to follow the law. If they think something is against the law, they will rule in favor of whoever is right. Doesn't matter if the other party has more or better lawyers. At least in most countries. Of course, there are a few exceptions like North Korea or Zimbabwe.
