Microsoft isn't trying to break linux compatibility, they are trying to improve Windows functionality. Windows 8 and Server 2012 moved to SMB 3.0, which is MUCH faster and robust for file sharing. If Linux can't keep up their compatibility, that is hardly MS fault for moving on.

Sure they are.

Microsoft has a long history of forcing users to upgrade to newer products in order for them to continue working with each other

Apple has a much worse track record in this regard and with Linux you are lucky if it works with your peripherals at all. MS still has by far the best track record in universal compatibility.
