"The Internet? We are not interested in it"
-- Bill Gates, 1993

MS has always been late in the game, part of the company culture.
Windows was big, as well as the office apps... but not much innovation, just repackaging and "value added" profits. Business.
at this point I think it is there continued effort to explore "new things" and see if they can earn a buck... like the phone and tablet and other things that became tax write offs

Linux is Open Source. They are welcome to it.

I'm amazed how many people think MS really cares about desktop Linux. They don't. Now, the server end of things, that's a different story. Linux does as well in the server market as they do badly in the home one, and MS desperately wants to build a cloud business.
+1, but recognising that Microsoft contribute more to Linux than does Go-ogle.

you know that one girl in high school that was always fat and her hair was a mess, she knew nothing about makeup and she walked like a dude? yeah that was linux in highschool, the cool kids laughed and bullied her all through her teenage years, but when she became a woman everyone wanted a piece of her. microsoft is just one of those doodhback cool kids that have nothing but money to throw in her face. why, pretty lady ? why did you sell it for money.

ok i probably would have dome the same thing being a developer had a huge pile of money drop in my lap. i guess i can't be too picky about how developers make their living, but why in the hell does microsoft not just employ some linux developers and start their own distro.

ps: oooh i get it now, no words needed .... AZURE :lol:

It reminds me of a time years ago when M$ was using Linux servers for their own rigs all the while marketing windows server. After that fact was discovered they started switching to windows servers. lol
