An additional reason for Microsoft's change of heart, according to Rafael Laguna, CEO of Open-Xchange, is: "Microsoft boss Nadella wants to buy new credit in the open-source industry, distancing the company from the business model and practises of his predecessors, i.e. Gates' and Ballmer's sincere dislike of open source developers". Nadella, however, "recognizes that Microsoft's future revenue will come from providing cloud services, rather than selling operating system licenses. And for cloud services, Linux is now the operating system of choice - underpinned by the fact that already half of the Microsoft Azure services are based on Linux today."
