Microsoft to support Linux

In a marked departure from its earlier stand, Microsoft has promised to add
Linux support for the first time in one of its products. Microsoft's Server
2005 product will run on non-Windows machines, including Linux.

Microsoft had always rebuffed any requests for interoperability with
products it didn't make, particularly Linux, an open-source giant, which it
has long considered a threatening alternative.
