The marketing companies that M$ hires do make eye-catching headlines. There is a lot of wishful thinking involved as well. However, those that look at what M$ actually does, rather than what they say, are not fooled a bit by the new marketing. They continue to every bit as harmful to FOSS and to industry in general as they always have been, perhaps more so as some people slack off on the vigilance.
