Is it possible for you to add Ubuntu 13.04 to the Windows 8 Store, so that I can download it with just one click? Maybe you have to work together with Microsoft, because both Windows 8 and Ubuntu 13.04 will become more popular if you do this. Otherwise, only developers will keep using Ubuntu. I hope this sounds logical to you and that Microsoft will give more freedom to Linux.

Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.
Windows wouldn't add Ubuntu to their Windows 8 store for the simple reason that it would be advertising a FREE alternative operating system to Windows, therefore losing themselves potential customers. Microsoft doesn't hold control over Linux, therefore they can not give it MORE freedom than it already has because it's about as free as it gets.
Not just developers use Ubuntu, in fact, general users are hosting all variants of distributions of Linux on their personal computers purely for some simple reasons like open source, performance, appeal, etc.
I think it's best Windows and Ubuntu stay separate, considering the path Windows is heading down.
