NewsApple fans: Microsoft is no longer the enemy PinstaffTerrence Dorsey27-Mar-13 10:23 
One of the guys who works on Windows Azure Mobile Services gave me a demo of its support for iOS. What? Microsoft supporting iOS? What? That isn’t the Microsoft (I thought) I knew. Once I got over the shock, I expected that I’d have to write code in C# (a Microsoft language), that services would run behind IIS (a Microsoft webserver), and that I’d have to use Visual Studio (a Microsoft developer tool) on Windows, which I don’t have. That would be typical Microsoft, right? Instead: The code is JavaScript, the webserver is Node.js, and I can write code in any text editor. No Microsoft things. The company even released some related code as open source and put it on GitHub.
Microsoft noticed the world outside Redmond, and it likes it.
