My spin: I guess MS feels if you can’t beat ’em then join up. Microsoft already offers many free tools but I guess it’s now offering more to combat the “free Linux” movement.
Microsoft plans to broaden its attack on Linux and related operating systems this week by giving away a set of tools for migrating applications to Windows.
The company is expected to release on Thursday a new version of Services for Unix (SFU), a collection of tools that help Windows systems to work with installations based on the Unix operating system and its open-source derivative, Linux.
Microsoft previously charged $99 per client or server to use SFU. But the new version, 3.5, will be free for any customer using a current Windows operating system. (full story)
