Re: Not even close
really? the Microsoft that is shipping Linux binaries now and has contributed hundreds of patches to the kernel is the same as the one that was saying that GPL is cancer and the that Linux is a "fad"?
I think it's a Microsoft that have admitted they can't just ignore it, badmouth it, or bury it in lame twisted lies and fearmongering. The Penguins have wandered into the park Microsoft saw as theirs and crowded close to their picnic, is close to running all the kiosks and threaten to invade their wine-bar.
Microsoft have chosen to invite them in instead, and ensure as many uses of the penguin as possible also fill their coffers.
All the patches most likely do no more than serve Windows/Linux interoperability, and do so to the benefit of Windows and MS. That's not love, that's exploitation.
