Microsoft desarrollando para Linux - Excelente noticia!!

Quien dice que ¿Los cerdos no vuelan"?

Microsoft anuncia las primeros 20,000 lineas de codigo para Linux, eso es historico y fue bajo licencia GNU General Public License v2.
Vaya sorpresa y que bueno contar con Microsoft como otro contribuyente al desarrollo del kernel de Linux.

Microsoft’s Linux drivers were developed largely by members of Microsoft’s Open Source Technology Center (OSTC) team, which has developed expertise in Linux, Unix and open-source technologies.

Tom Hanrahan, the head of the OSTC, is quoted on Microsoft’s press site as explaining the purpose of the drivers this way:

“Our initial goal in developing the (Linux driver) code was to enable Linux to run as a virtual machine on top of Hyper-V, Microsoft’s hypervisor and implementation of virtualization.

“The Linux device drivers we are releasing are designed so Linux can run in enlightened mode, giving it the same optimized synthetic devices as a Windows virtual machine running on top of Hyper-V. Without this driver code, Linux can run on top of Windows, but without the same high performance levels. We worked very closely with the Hyper-V team at Microsoft to make that happen.”
