Are Citrix's Linux Strategy and Microsoft's Bear Paw Strategy Related?

My Citrix strategy story kicked off a number of threads on the Web and one pointed to this very interesting piece by Brian Madden. He writes:

"In this editorial I’m going to suggest the possibility that Citrix’s Linux strategy and Microsoft’s Bear Paw strategy are related. Specifically, I wonder if this is a “You scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours” scenario. I wonder if Microsoft’s decision to delay Bear Paw until the next platform release of Windows (probably 2007) is a “gift” to Citrix in return for Citrix choosing not to release a version of MetaFrame Presentation Server for Linux."
