"So what's next, MS hasn't got its UNIX yet. SUSE or Canonical?"

Now that you can run Linux apps under Windows without the Linux kernel I can't see why they would want to own a distribution. Microsoft can just assist in building userland installs of every key distro and sell it on the security, audit, integration and performance advantages of running it under all under the Windows kernel or hyper-v server.
