Linus Torvalds Thanks Microsoft for a Great Black Friday Monitor Deal – Softpedia

Posted: December 5, 2014 in Generally Speaking..

The rhetoric regarding the Linux vs. Windows subject has subsided a great deal in the last few years. There have been some issues with UEFI and other similar problems, but for the most part things have quieted down.

There is no one left at the Redmond campus to call Linux a cancer and no one is making fun of Windows for crashing all the time. In fact, there has been some sort of reconciliation between the two sides, which seems to benefit everyone.

It’s not like Microsoft is ready to adopt the Linux kernel for their operating system, but the new management of the company talks about Linux as a friend, especially in the cloud.

They can no longer ignore it, even if they want to. The same happened with Linus Torvalds who hasn’t said anything bad about Microsoft and Windows for a long time, and that is a good thing.

The reason of course, being that Microsoft (Windows) is moving away from the utterly facsist closed source nightmare it used to be (for example, OneNote for several platforms) so this takes away some reasons for Linus Torvalds to complain.  So in turn, Microsoft has nothing to say about their biggest former critic.  In the process of turning over a new leaf, the MS-Torvalds war ending benefits everyone.
