Every few months now, Google and Microsoft continue to add Linux features and capabilities to allow developers AND users to take advantage of Linux features (like built in superior networking tools and vastly improved security from malware, etc.).
Also, Malware management & risk of hacking inside corporations/govt’s is becoming one of the main drivers to switch away from old legacy Windows code. In fact, Windows maintenance is such MS is no longer even trying to maintain and update many areas of the Windows code base.
Most IT pros are now predicting MS will either do their own Linux distro (to completely replace Windows) . . . or . . . will buy Suse, Redhat or Canonical and leave the main OS to them, while MS builds tools to allow users to seamlessly run either OS or cross platform programs.
