Red Hat Linux and its close relationship with Microsoft?

From the ‘Business Partners‘ files:

Microsoft and Red Hat, Linux and Windows aren’t supposed to get along right?

But they do, and apparently Microsoft and Red Hat are now getting along very well too.

During a Q&A session during Red Hat’s Analyst Day this week, Red Hat revealed that its relationship with Microsoft isn’t as stormy as it once was.

“That relationship with Microsoft, believe it or not, is pretty strong. It was pushed by our customer base,” Paul Cormier executive vice president and president, products and technologies at Red Hat said during the meeting. “Our customer base came to us and say ‘look we have two operating systems running the datacenter, RHEL and Windows and you guys need to work together’  so we got together.”
