Microsoft has redefined its targets and keep focus on three main areas:
Any offer coming from MS may be put it into one of this areas. For instance, what about OS or Office? well, the new Office 365 is a Cloud app and it’s offered as a service.
According to this new approach MS is offering services based on Linux.
Things are so different from a couple of years that they have published a serie named Microsoft Loves Linux.
But don’t get fooled about it, they offer Linux as a service, as an OS built on MS services. So you gonna stay attached to MS.
