Microsoft Says 'We Love Open Source'
Microsoft's relationship with the open source community has come a long way since CEO Steve Balmer called Linux a "cancer" in 2001. In a NetworkWorld interview, a Microsoft executive said, "We love open source."

Well, the Redmond-based software giant is now making key contributions to open to the Linux kernel in terms of drivers, as well as other open source initiatives.
