A new addition to the list of top contributors this year was Microsoft. The Redmond giant was the 17th most prolific corporate contributor to the Linux kernel in 2011. The company first began contributing code to Linux in 2009 when it submitted patches to improve the performance of running virtualized Linux guest instances on Windows servers.

Microsoft does a lot of work for other operating systems actually.

Anyone who loves knocking them should have all of their technology taken away, cause that's what it would be like if MSFT never existed.

Hate on MS all you want, they're the reason Apple is even around these days (and I don't mean the "bail out" which never really happened... I mean driving Apple to compete and outdo)
