Microsoft Makes the List of the Top 20 Contributors to the Linux Kernel
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 Linuxkernel. 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.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
