I’m pretty sure the ones from Micro$oft who contributed to Linux are fired.

In fact, Microsoft supports GNU Linux for their Hyper-V solution…Hence you’re wrong.

And that’s not all: just recently it was told in Finnish newsletter that Micro$oft is one of the biggest contributors to the kernel. Which doesn’t make much sense.

Yes Microsoft is and has been in one of the top cotributors to the kernel.. But Like Alex said its mostly to Support Hyper-V so u can have linux guest on Hyper-V..

Truely amazing. Its just that non-technical people think Linux is just for computer geeks, however it is much more powerful in every aspects. Ubuntu and other flavors trying to make it as simple as possible I am sure thousands of windows lovers will start switching over.
