Because you don't have the source code to Windows as an OS. I'm not sure I
understand why you'd even ask such a question.

Oh, and to answer your next series of dumb questions:

- You don't have the source because Microsoft doesn't sell it.

- Microsoft doesn't sell it because they own it and decided not to.

- Microsoft decided not to because they'd like to stay in business and
  be able to pay their employees.

Soo..... What's hard about this concept?
