Re: Microsoft Linux Foundation
And also I agree with what you said. It's definitely interesting to see what they're doing and did not see it coming. But I'm glad to see them making big moves.

Re: Microsoft Linux Foundation
Good point and I agree. Companies really need to embrace change and go with the flow on things. Being able to chnage and stay on top of the game is crucial in this ever changing world.

Seen & Heard: Microsoft Signs Up for The Linux Foundation
As I was reading this article was shocked to hear about Microsoft and Linux are working together. I honestly can't wait to hear about the news on how successful it works out. I think is one of the best ideas for both of them because it will be ridiculous big in business. I am looking forward to hearing about the future progress.

Microsoft Can Do Anything
Microsoft has embraced open source because it knows that's what its customers want. In fact, the software giant hired someone in April to oversee open source advancements at the company. It's great that Microsoft is moving away from the notion of software as intellectual property. This is all a credit to CEO Satya Nadella and his dedication to the cloud.

Microsoft Linux Foundation
I am surprised that Microsoft signed up with Linux but it is exciting to hear the news. It is about time. Top companies have to eliminate old thinking and outdated business practices and embrace new technologies and strategies if they want to remain competitive.

If not, a startup company may come along and take their spot.

Re: Microsoft can do anything
Strange as this might have seemed a few years ago, open source is being embraced by Microsoft these days. It's no surprise to me they are paying to be a part of the Linux Foundation - it seems anyone who wants to embrace open source has to do so.

Re: Microsoft can do anything
It has taken some doing--no doubt.   The question is how the current transition process in Washington and how it impacts business in the long-term.    I was thinking about this as I was reading up IBM CEO's open letter to President-Elect Trump:

Re: Microsoft can do anything
@mpouraryan - I agree with you completely.  MSFT has finally seen the light.  It dosn't mean they will jump in feet first, but at least they are dipping their proverbial foot in the pool.

Re: Microsoft can do anything
There is no doubt--I see it as a natural evolution--the question is how to manage it in a way that is responsible keeping the "human element" in mind.

Re: Microsoft can do anything
The way things have gone, I wonder: does cloud adoption just naturally lead to the collaborative atmosphere of open source?
