Nice! Microsoft should have stated that all large vendors are contributing. Ms is again late to the game. They are the only database vendor that does not have a linux solution and have been lagging for years. Then all of a sudden it's a problem. 

Ibm and hp have seen the future and are promoting Linux over their own OSes. What's Microsoft doing?  Ignorantly fighting the inevitable, blinded by greed. 

Claiming it's big bad linux is just stating that its a wide range of companies and a larger range of people causing their demise. 

Chalk up one small victory for democracy and a loss for big business and their lobby budgets.
