Keeping aside business rivaly, Microsoft is better known to send out well wishes to competitors when they hit certain milestones. Recently, softies sent a Internet Explorer 9 cupcake to the Mozilla foundation for shipping their latest version of FireFox 5.
Now, the Redmond software giant has shown their creativity in a short video produced for the Linux foundation on their 20th birthday.
In the video, Microsoft pokes fun at the relationship between Linux and Microsoft over the years. The video kicks off by saying it's Microsoft VS. Linux and goes over the troubled past the two organizations have bickered about over the years.
While the two organizations have fought, it shows that Microsoft does have respect for the Linux organization and generally offers an olive branch to the group.
