Microsoft is buying control of Linux

Microsoft is buying control of Linux.  At least as much as any one company can actually do.  They are purchasing (with big sacks of cash) influence over some of the most critical and high profile Linux and Open Source organizations on the planet.  Is this good?  Is this bad?  Is this a step on the road to “Embrace, Extend, Extinguish”?  I’ll leave that up to you to decide… but it’s definitely happening.
