It's surprising how much companies can change over the years. Back when I started this website, about 15 years ago, Microsoft regarded Linux as cancer and communism all in one. Years ago Windows and Linux started to co-exist peacefully and now the software giant is on track to play a major role to help shape the future of Linux. There's still some skepticism about this but pigs do seem to fly:
Pigs, in other words, do fly. Microsoft, while maintaining its commitment to Windows, has made the necessary steps to not merely run on Linux but to help shape the future of Linux.
Ten years ago, this would have been a ridiculous statement. Today, although Frazelle’s exuberant tweet seems a bit too optimistic, a year or two from now it may be considered obvious.
In my opinion, Microsoft is the only place doing serious innovating with Linux, it's not even a contest, so I couldn't be more excited
