Microsoft is a leading contributor to Linux

The virtualization market is increasingly competitive and to fight against offers from VMware or Citrix, for example, Microsoft needs to make its products compatible with Linux distributions. This explains why Microsoft and Novell have worked together for many years. By adding the drivers Hyper-V, Redmond ensures that the new kernel can be virtualized on Windows Server 2008 R2 and have good performance.

The cloud in business is becoming more popular. It centralizes data, but also operating systems that run on thin clients. Servers therefore need to support multiple operating systems at the same time optimally and Hyper-V can not survive if he denies Linux.
