[News] Microsoft Looks for Free Labour to Undercut GNU/Linux

Hash: SHA1

Shining Light on Why Microsoft Loves LAMP to Death

| This has been going on for a while, and is part of a larger move by Microsoft 
| to weaken the foundations of open source - especially GNU/Linux - on the 
| pretext that they are simply porting some of the top layers to its own stack. 
| But the net result is that it diminishes the support for GNU/Linux, and makes 
| those upper-level apps more dependent on Microsoft's good graces. The plan is 
| clearly to sort out GNU/Linux first, before moving on up the stack.     
| It's clever, and exactly the sort of thing I would expect from the cunning 
| people at Microsoft. That I understand; what I don't get is why these LAMP 
| hackers are happy to cut off the branch they sit on by aiding and abetting 
| Microsoft in its plans? Can't they see what's being done to their LAMP?

| "Forty percent of servers run Windows, 60 percent run Linux," he said. "How
| are we doing? Forty is less than 60, so I don't like it. ... We have some
| work to do."
