Recently, the company began to change radically under the leadership of Satya Nadella, but the surprises are coming in the future, as suggested by the phrase technical Director Azure Mark Russinovich.
During the conference ChefCon, answering the question, he did not rule out that someday it may become the Windows operating system open source.
When Cade Metz, the business editor of Wired, asked whether Windows will eventually be made open source, in the hall there was loud applause, and Russinovich said, «It’s definitely possible. As I said, this is the new Microsoft».
