Is Microsoft publishing its own FreeBSD? Yes and no

Serdar Yegulalp | June 10, 2016
A FreeBSD image on Azure has new additions and improvements, plus Microsoft support -- but that's a long way from the company producing its own distro

Microsoft's direct contributions to other operating systems have inevitably revolved around making them more compatible with its own ecosystem. Even the new, Nadella-driven Microsoft, which is far friendlier to open source, isn't likely to veer far from the course. But if it means an incrementally better FreeBSD for all, it's hard to complain.
