Microsoft is a business. They cooperate with Linux/open source in areas where it makes sense for them. They also try to make the best of the Linux world work with their ecosystem, to prevent people from switching over entirely. They already lost the server and mobile markets to Linux, they don't want to lose development and the desktop on top of it. That's pretty much all. And no, they realized by now that they cannot destroy Linux. That might have been Ballmer's approach. But no more. Linux is firmly entrenched by now, anywhere but the desktop. They simply can't.

I'm just waiting for functionality to appear that only works, or works better, in the parts of Linux that are embedded in Windows, like what happened with Java 15 years ago. I hope we manage to stop them in time.
