Ubuntu and Microsoft Join Forces

Fifteen years ago, Stever Ballmer said, Linux is a cancer that attaches itself in an intellectual property sense to everything it touches. But lately, the software giant has turned around, not only porting SQL Server to Linux but even incorporating it into Windows 10. Linking with Ubuntu, Windows 10 incorporates binaries such that Ubuntu isn't emulated or running in a sandbox, rather native applications will run side-by-side. Why? The integration is being touted as a tool for developers. Not all of the apps will simply port across as ultimately there isn't a linux kernel or other features lying beneath. But Microsoft is trying to bring Windows back to the forefront as a platform for development, a share of the market they've long since lost to Linux.
