Microsoft Contributes Linux Drivers to Linux Community

The fervor over Microsoft’s releasing 20,000 lines of device driver code to the Linux community is dying down . The code, including three Linux device drivers, has been submitted to the Linux kernel community for inclusion in the Linux tree. The drivers will be available to the Linux community and customers alike, and

will enhance the performance of the Linux operating system when virtualized on Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V or Windows Server 2008 R2 Hyper-V.
