Quoting from the article (emphasis added) :

But Microsoft's Taylor disagrees that funded research is not useful, saying that a discussion on facts and independent data is always a benefit to the industry. "As much as Microsoft might get billed as being anti-Linux, that's actually not the case. I just want people to judge technology on its merit versus on hype and emotion. It helps all of us build better products and respond to customer needs more effectively," Taylor said.

Yeah, just look at the marketing campaign around Windows Vista...
