Microsoft offering software for Linux is one thing. Microsoft offering 
Linux is another. The latter is not going to happen for the foreseeable 

A new version of Windows based upon FreeBSD? Maybe in several years.

stronger reasons to avoid it (like they've publically declared that the 
GPL is a cancer).
