An anonymous reader shares a report: Three years ago, Mark Russinovich, CTO of Azure, Microsoft’s cloud program, said, “One in four [Azure] instances are Linux.” Then, in 2017, it was 40 percent Azure virtual machines (VM) were Linux. Today, Scott Guthrie, Microsoft’s executive vice president of the cloud and enterprise group, said in an interview, “Slightly over half of Azure VMs are Linux. That’s right. Microsoft’s prize cloud, Linux, not Windows Server, is now the most popular operating system. Windows Server isn’t going to be making a come back. Every month, Linux goes up,” Guthrie said. And it’s not just Azure users who are turning to Linux. “Native Azure services are often running on Linux,” Guthrie added. “Microsoft is building more of these services. For example, Azure’s Software Defined Network (SDN) is based on Linux.” It’s not just on Azure that Microsoft is embracing Linux. “Look at our simultaneous release of SQL Server on Linux. All of our projects now run on Linux,” Guthrie said.

An anonymous reader writes: For those unfamiliar with the project, Stage 9 is a beautiful virtual recreation of the Enterprise ship from Star Trek: The Next Generation for Windows, Mac and Linux. More experience than game, Stage 9 was built by fans over two years in the Unreal Engine. “There were two things that we were always pretty careful with,” says project leader ‘Scragnog’. “We made it as clear as we possibly could that this was NOT an officially licensed project. We had no affiliation with CBS or Paramount and the IP we were trying our hardest to treat with respect was not our own. We were fans, just creating fan art.” In an announcement this week, Scragnog reminded fans that no one involved in the project was in it for any financial reason and everyone was well aware that throwing money into the mix could be a problem. However, the team says it has always known that they could be shut down at any time on the whim of a license holder because in this world, that’s what can happen. Unfortunately, that day has come all too soon for the impressive project. Stage 9 was hit with an intellectual property complaint from CBS just over two weeks ago and has now been shut down. “This letter was a cease-and-desist order,” Scragnog explains. “Over the next 13 days we did everything we possibly could to open up a dialog with CBS. The member of the CBS legal team that issued the order went on holiday for a week immediately after sending the letter through, which slowed things down considerably.”
