Microsoft joins the Linux Foundation ?!

Microsoft joins the Linux Foundation, 15 years after Ballmer called it ‘cancer’

Who would have thought? Well, my good friend Leo did. He has been saying this for years, that Microsoft has been incorporating Linux-like code in its OS. So, it didn’t come as such a surprise to me. What did surprise me was that it was announced now, that Windows-10-logo.jpgentered the “001windows10anniversary.jpg” edition. Why not anounce it alongside their next OS?

Anywho, the Linux Foundation is a trade association founded in 2007 by Open Source Development Labs and Free Standards Group. It is supported by many big names in the electronics industry such as Linus Torvalds, 1000px-IBM_logo.svg.png, Fujitsu-Logo.svg.png, HP_logo_2012.svg.pngNEC_logo.svg.png,663px-Oracle_logo.svg.pngQualcomm-Logo.svg.png,Samsung_Logo.svg.png, now Microsoft_logo_(2012).svg.png and many many others.
The Foundation is non-profit and, naturally, sponsors, promotes, protects and advances Linux and collaborative development.
