Microsoft released Linux codes?? All because of Hyper-V

Just read news that Microsoft actually released codes for Linux under GPL v2. However, don't read too much into it.

Why? They released Linux codes because they wanted Linux to work better on top of Hyper-V, their server virtualisation technology for Windows Server 2008. For a moment, I thought that they might be releasing codes for Samba so that Linux will have better integration in terms of file sharing with Windows machines.

Fat chance... Microsoft will always be Microsoft.
