The Microsoft company announced on Wednesday (16) during the event for developers Connect, which is part of the Linux Foundation, a nonprofit organization that works to be able to standardize and help Linux to grow.

After showing the world that is devoted to contributing to Linux, Microsoft company decided now formalizing it, using its accession to the Linux Foundation, which will soon be considered a full affiliate.
