Red Hat

The partnership we are announcing today with Red Hat extends our commitment to offer unmatched choice and flexibility in an enterprise-grade cloud experience across the hybrid cloud. With more than 80 percent of the Fortune 500 using Microsoft’s cloud, for us to team with the leader in enterprise Linux allows even more businesses to move to the cloud on their terms. By working with Red Hat, we will address common enterprise, ISV and developer needs for building, deploying and managing applications on Red Hat software across private and public clouds, including the following.

Only fourteen short years ago:

Linux is not in the public domain. Linux is a cancer that attaches itself in an intellectual property sense to everything it touches.

What a time to be alive.

"[q]With more than 80 percent of the Fortune 500 using Microsoft’s cloud


Thanks, I needed a good laugh.

That doesn't mean they're using it for anything serious. Most of those cases are probably "some pointy-haired boss pulled rank and got their dinky little pet project hosted on Microsoft's cloud".

Hell, I'm surprised so many companies (eg. NetFlix) depend on the uptime of Amazon's cloud as it is. [/q]

I guess something's happening in your blind spot, because Microsoft stock price is trending up on the back of its cloud efforts, pet projects they may be or not...
