Microsoft developers have made contributions to OSS projects over the last year. Key ones includeDevice Driver Code for Linux: enables better performance of Linux when virtualized with Hyper-V Hyper-V Linux Integration Components: if you are an IT Pro, you care, because managing heterogeneous systems is the reality.WordPress plugin (Bing + Azure): if you are a web developer running the LAMP stack, fine, but MS can still provide you with some cool featuresCoApp: you are developing apps for Linux? Why not make them work on Windows and open up more opportunities for your app to get adopted?
Customers own their own data, whether stored on-premises or in the cloud. Therefore, cloud platforms should facilitate themovement of customers’ data in and out of the cloud.Cloud platforms should support commonly used industry standards so as to facilitate interoperability with other software and services that support the same standards. New standards may be developed where existing standards are insufficient for emerging cloud platform scenarios.Cloud platforms should provide a secure migration path that preserves existing investments and should enable the co-existence between on-premise software and cloud services. This will enable customers to run “customer clouds” and partners (including hosters) to run “partner clouds” as well as take advantage of public cloud platform services.Cloud platforms should offer developers choice in software development tools, languages and runtimes.
