Microsoft Became an Apache Sponsor and is Contibuting a Patch to ADOdb

OK, I was caught by surprise (but pleased anyway) by these announcements by Microsoft's Sam Ramji (Senior Director of Platform Strategy) in his blog entry...


The two that interested me most are...

1. Microsoft has become a sponsor of the Apache Foundation.

2. ADOdb patch for a native driver for PHP built by the SQL Server team.

My take on both of these announcements is that they will enable Windows shops to more easily seriously consider running an AMP (Apache, MySQL, PHP and maybe Python and Perl too) stack on Windows (WAMP). This should help AMP based web products get some consideration in these Windows shops.
