rectify is wise, they say, and how it has Microsoft for Linux and Open Source environment , despite being motivated by self-interest, has merit (although they say, if you can not beat them, join them).
MuyComputer our colleagues say, the Redmond not only have had to swallow hard saying Linux-qualify as a “communist danger”, or denounce it as cancer of the software industry, but their contribution in developing the Linux kernel is growing .
This is reflected in The Register, which include the post 17 as a direct contributor to the development of Linux that the company has earned Steve Ballmer since the release of kernel version 2.6.36. A contribution estimated 1% of the total source code for Linux .
Another important fact, apart from Microsoft, is the developers who contribute code, 75% of whom are receiving a salary from his position as a programmer at one of the many companies involved with Linux.
Also, the amount of contributions and contributors have increased considerably in recent years. In version 2.6.11 were accepted code contributions of about 369 developers, while with version 3.2 the number is over 1,300.
