Microsoft a top contributor to Linux!?

Considering Microsoft makes a huge amount of its money off the Windows operating system, it sounds very strange to hear that the software giant is also a big contributor to the development of the Linux kernel. Of the top 20 contributors, Microsoft is on the list at number 17.

Microsoft certainly isn't helping to develop Linux out of the goodness of its cold binary heart. Rather, the company helps develop the open source Linux kernel as a means to allow it to work more efficiently and without issues alongside Windows servers. Many enterprises run both Windows and Linux platforms and interoperability is key.
