It seems weird that Microsoft has been so hostile towards Linux in the past, yet today, I see Fedora succumbing to Microsoft by supporting uEFI, and now Microsoft using Linux on the new Azure Cloud platform.
I hardly know what to think and I may need to step outside to make sure the sky isn’t falling.
On June 7th Microsoft is set to reveal the new features to Azure, which will have windows 8 running on persistent virtual machines; they will also talk about about Antares, the framework for hosting Web sites and Web apps on Azure.
Wow, what a day! Initially, I wanted to do an article about the Fedora + uEFI thing, but it just seemed so depressing. When I read this I decided to roll it all into one blog post so that I can at least have some semblance of positivity.
