MICROSOFT --
This shouldn't come as a big surprise given Microsoft's Linux/open-source moves in the past couple of years, including joining the Linux Foundation and more, but their latest sponsorship comes down to joining the Open Source Initiative.

OSI has confirmed today that Microsoft has become a Premium Sponsor of this organization defending open-source software.

Other existing Premium Sponsors of the OSI include the likes of Google, IBM, HP Enterprise, Facebook, GitHub, and others.

The press release announcing the Microsoft + OSI consummation can be read on opensource.org.
