Microsoft might make Windows open-sourced

Microsoft might make Windows open-sourced

Microsoft is a company that is best known for its ubiquitous Windows operating system. Despite decades of existence, however, Windows has never been free. Well, soon this might change.

The exciting news came out of Mark Russinovich, who happens to be the technical director of Microsoft’s Azure cloud platform. According to Mr. Russinovich Microsoft closely follows the software development around the world and finds that more and more people prefer to use or already use open-sourced software. Due to this reason he believes that Microsoft will make Windows open-sourced sooner or later just because the software company must go along with the changes that occur around the world. In fact the first steps have been made – Microsoft allows users to install Linux on the Azure cloud computing platform.

Unfortunately the first free Windows will likely come years from now, since the upcoming Windows 10 operating system will not be such for sure.
