Well, if you want to run Windows as your main OS while running a few apps on Linux or the BSDs, then this is good. Otherwise, it won't affect you.
MS just did this because the status quo forced people to not run Windows as their host OS. Obviously not a beneficial situation for MS, although it's not a big deal yet.

You watch. Give it a couple of years and they'll be extorting us for licences to run Linux on the grounds they now own it.
With any luck that will produce another excellent Stuff Off open letter from Linus Torvalds.
Anyone see that? It was a classic.

Hmmm. I'd be interested to see some facts to back this sort of supposition up. My stats surely don't show this at all.
I see this as Microsoft reinstating and updating the Linux support in the virtualization software they bought from Connectix. The capability has always been there to my knowledge.
If they want to take business away from the VMware products this sort of support is vital.
