Linux It's strange. Microsoft has been patent trolling the heck out of the Linux kernel for a long time now, and is still using these patents against Android today in its protection money scheme. However, as LWN.net illustrates, Microsoft makes quite a few contributions to the Linux kernel. Shouldn't this invalidate their patent claims?

So you don't think it is a good thing in general that any Linux distros can benefit from having HyperV support?

Apparently anything that microsoft does it bad ...

Seriously ???


Never said it was bad, just irrelevant for most people that care about linux itself (as opposed to what it can do for their business etc.)

Linux users will not be virtualising on top of windows. Only windows users that need something from linux will be using hyper-V.

I would however commend Microsoft if they improved something like say...the kinect driver.
