That's for real: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/interoperabilit ... ities.aspx

Maybe they start to fear Apple with their lock in philosophy? Maybe they see Linux as partner sharing the same, not locked in hardware? Just a guess, not really a founded idea.

Smoke and mirrors or genuine interest, its hard to tell. MS-Closed is still trying to lock everyone else out at the bios level, and the following quote doesn't eliminate that option.

      Quote:
Today, thousands of open standards are supported by Microsoft and many open source environments including Linux, Hadoop, MongoDB, Drupal, Joomla and others, run on our platform.


They still expect linux to run as a vm on their OS... its a one way open-ness. I doubt they will be releasing win7-vm.deb any time soon.
