Freak snowstorm reported in hell. Tea party agrees

Microsoft submits open-source code under the GPLv3 to Samba. Those
are all pretty unlikely, but Microsoft really did submit code to
the Samba file server open-source project.
This might not strike you as too amazing. After all, Microsoft
has supported some open-source projects at CodePlex for some time
now and they will work with some other projects such as the Python
and PHP languages and the Drupal content management system (CMS).
But, Samba, Samba is different. They're an old Microsoft enemy.
