Microsoft's Linux-based OS

Microsoft Loves Linux!

Microsoft has rolled its own "Linux distribution"   Yip!
But it's no surprise because Microsoft was among the largest contributors to the Linux kernel and today about 1/5 of the operating systems running on Microsoft's Azure cloud platform are Linux-based.
It's all happening due to customers, developers and enterprises making it know their preference to use of open source software.  
So Microsoft is now willing to make a Linux-based OS for datacenter networking. 
The .NET development framework, hitched Windows to the popular open-source container automation platform Docker, and even hinted it may one day lift the lid on the code that powers Windows.
So great thing for 2016!
