Paging Linux Users: What Made You Give Up on Windows?

Once described by Microsoft as “a cancer,” the Linux world has become a key focus for Microsoft these days, especially as part of the company’s transformation started shortly after Satya Nadella took over the CEO role from Steve Ballmer.

With Nadella at the helm of the company, the software giant has made it very clear that “Microsoft loves Linux,” and this message has been reiterated pretty much with every single occasion.

At some level, this makes perfect sense, as Microsoft has become more interested in developers, and in their turn, developers are often deeply committed to the Linux ecosystem.

But for a company that stood so firmly against Linux, this is quite a change of mind. And not only that Microsoft likes Linux, but even Steve Ballmer, the former company leader who used the cancer phrase.
