Walking on a Fence – Canonical and M$

Muktware has some more links to information about Canonical dealing with M$ to have Ubuntu GNU/Linux available as an image for Azure clouds. Canonical sees it as just another platform for Ubuntu GNU/Linux. I cannot argue with that and they claim no special considerations were demanded by M$. I hope it’s not the beginning of “partnership” between M$ and Canonical. The world is better off with M$ having less influence in IT, not more. OTOH, M$ has lots of customers who may be interested in GNU/Linux. Canonical probably sees cooperation with M$ as an acceptable risk.
