The 343 changes made by Microsoft developer K. Y. Srinivasan put him at the top of a list, created by LWN.net, of developers who made the most changes in the current development cycle for Linux 3.0. Along with a number of other "change sets", Microsoft provided a total of 361 changes, putting it in seventh place on the list of companies and groups that contributed code to the Linux kernel. By comparison, independent developers provided 1,085 change sets to Linux 3.0, while Red Hat provided 1,000 and Intel 839.
Haters gonna hate

In other news: Microsoft's Clippy is now a kernel module.

Well it's not like Microsoft never does anything good. It's just that the things they do badly happen to be the only ones anyone ever talks about.

Microsoft so much ahead of its competitors

The Linux kernel is world-class, but the operating systems being created for that kernel aren't very good.

post #8 of 20
I just had a conversation with my teacher about this topic.
He pointed out that this is most likely a PR stunt.

Heres what I said, "Your probably right, but I hope your wrong."

I like to imagine Linux like a animal, adapting to its surroundings to suit its needs as time goes by. Say Linux is a Chimp now, hopefully one day it will evolve into Man.
And remember Linux evolves faster because it is Open.

Linux OS'es are growing with leaps and bounds, including the mobil sector. Is it possible that Microsoft can see projections of what is to come and wants to jump on now while its still early? I think so but people think I'm crazy.

Microsoft Linux Server Distro anyone? Wouldn't be anything stopping them (bar their own products in that niche...)
