Hell just froze over

Weren't they saying not that long ago that Linux was "cancer"? What changed, was it finding out that they won't be taken seriously as a "cloud" provider if they don't offer Linux?

I won't be surprised if within 5 or 10 years they start offering their own Linux server distro, and if within 10 to 15 Windows starts getting the "Silverlight" treatment.
