Microsoft Contributes Code to the Linux Kernel

Microsoft released 20,000 lines of device driver code to the Linux Community. GPL. Unbelievable!

The code, which includes three Linux device drivers, has been submitted to the Linux kernel community for inclusion in the Linux tree.

What’s the catch? No catch other than recognizing that Linux has it’s value on the server space, and recognizing that Hyper-V needs to support Linux if if wants to keep up with VMWare and Xen.

It’s a cool new world we are living :)
