|Microsoft “loves Linux” as it makes Azure bigger, better|
Microsoft and Opensource have a relationship similar to the relationship between concrete and grass.
Concrete (Microsoft) very massive, capable, powerful, expensive, controlling, and hard to go without for many businesses. Alone concrete can embody huge structures and change the landscape in dramatic ways.
Grass (open source) very flexible, pervasive, unavoidable, clever, cheap, and hard to go without for many businesses. Alone grass provides oxygen, habitat, food, for a diverse ecosystem of beautiful grasslands.
Together concrete and grass can form wonderful gardens, parks, flower pots, and so many great unique experiences.
