    Hehe, they learned you have to be responsive to "the community". Out of touch with their customers perhaps???

    in my point of view this kernel driver is just a Trojan horse to kill Linux on the server market.

    I think Microsoft is the reluctant party this time... they were scratching their heads wondering why VMWare and Citrix were taking all of their virtualization customers and then realized that their few remaining ones were SCREAMING at them to get Linux performing at the required levels.

    Also, I bet when approaching new customers it must have come up during the evaluation phases (LOL I bet that went over well with Ballmer... when VMWare swoops in and checks all of the boxes Microsoft cannot deliver on for over half of their customer's requirements!)... by golly they must have felt like they were getting their asses kicked.
