What it says in the article SuperSapien linked to is ....
 

Matt Weinberger · Apr 16, 2018

Microsoft

    Microsoft on Monday announced Azure Sphere, a new technology to protect the processors that power smart appliances, connected toys, and other gadgets.
    Azure Sphere is powered in large part by Linux, a free operating system that Microsoft once viewed as a major threat.
    It's the first time ever that Microsoft has made Linux part of a product offering.

Microsoft announced on Monday a new technology called Azure Sphere, a new system for securing the tiny processors that power smart appliances, connected toys, and other gadgets.

We'll get to the specifics in a moment, but here's the really notable part: To power Azure Sphere, Microsoft has developed its own, custom version of Linux — the free, open source operating system that Microsoft once considered the single biggest threat to the supremacy of its Windows software.

What do you mean duplicate submission? I checked the forum and I couldn't find any thread like this one.

Uh, not really defending Mr. Ballmer, what's come out of Linus Torvald's mouth, and for decades, is really similar and often worse.  One big difference being that Linus has no compunction about "eating his own."

Actually I've got a  mouse click with a stutter (or at least it seems to submit things twice from time to time), but the end effect is the same.

 

Since I can't delete the post myself, I mark it as a duplicate in the hope that some kind person like Nick will delete it for me.
