I wouldn't say it has anything with a "love-in" for open source, it's
bowing to reality. CentOS is one of the biggest Web Server OSes and
Microsoft was probably failing to gain market from VMWare because they
didn't support CentOS. They also probably think it's a way to harm Red
Hat. We'll see how it works out for them.
