Microsoft BizSpark is a global program designed to help accelerate the success of early stage startups by providing key resources when they need it the most:
* Software. Receive fast and easy access to current full-featured Microsoft development tools, platform technologies, and production licenses of server products for immediate use in developing and bringing to market innovative and interoperable solutions. There is no upfront cost to enroll.
Fortunately, people don't choose the LAMP stack predominantly because it's free, but because it's better.
What next - *paying* people to use Microsoft's products? Oh, wait....
