I was at a conference in early January (it was more like a set of commercials for tech vendors pitching their products that included someone from Microsoft).   They mentioned (and I think Curt has as well) that Microsoft has embraced  open source and they are now offering things like SQL that can run on Linux.    Looks like Office 365 and other cloud offerings are paying off as well.

I'm a skeptic.  I don't trust MS.  They have an ulterior motive.  It's not the first time that I have heard about them "embracing" something to do with Linux.
