Not needing a separate test box makes this easier and Microsoft really wants to keep providing developer boxes. Also, services based on open source software is a great business model which even Microsoft is starting to believe in, so making open source development easier is important for them too.
Why is it that people prefer to code in LINUX vs windows?
