i wonder if they see kvm as an emerging competitor?
i know they recently announced support for centos but i think that was a cunning ploy to draw people away from rhel, thereby lowering rhel's turnover eventually. no rhel, no centos etc!
i'm also not unsure whether it was an own goal as i've seen a few M$ admins of late start looking at centos and after a while, they have liked what they saw and starting looking at other distro's and open source eg untangle etc.
the global recession is also changing M$ admins direction so something is going to give eventually, either a move to *nix or a rethink of the M$ licensing costs.
