Well Linus doesn't care about Microsoft, but he does care about Sun since the beginning. Well it is his very own Sun-disease :-)

Did you actually read that post you linked to? It's a reasoned, factual set of comments about Sun's position towards open source. A little cynical in places, but finishing on quite a positive note.
