Holy Toledo, I'd never thought I'd see the day. It remains to be seen how well it performs though. Props to Microsoft.

 For years, Microsoft built walls between its products and the rest of the industry. Now it is tearing them down.

Microsoft, the world’s biggest software company, is known for creating business software that runs only on the Windows operating system. That has made it hard — or impossible — to buy something like a database from Microsoft without first buying Windows to run on a server.

But on Monday Microsoft announced that SQL Server, its software for managing corporate data, would also run on Linux, a competing operating system. Other Microsoft products could follow suit, analysts said.

I think Richard Stallman's head just exploded.  Although I think he's a bit extreme, I'm looking forward to reading his reaction to this.
