Microsoft to Support Linux

Posted on: November 3, 2006 - 21:08 By: Feynmanfan

In the last few months we have seen Microsoft working closer with companies that support and develop open source applications such as Sugar CRM. Microsoft has also claimed that it is becoming somewhat less agressive in its approach to competition. That said todays announcement that Microsoft will be supporting Novell's Suse Linux is still somewhat of a shock. Some might be suspicious of this new relationship, but perhaps we should applaude it as an example of how open source could be good for everyone; even Microsoft.
