Dryad goes commercial?

I’m in the middle of my summer holiday at the moment, hence the relative silence here, but I just noticed this article by Mary Jo Foley suggesting that Microsoft might be turning Dryad into a commercial product next year and couldn’t resist posting it:

There was a flurry of interest in it a few years ago but I thought all had gone quiet; maybe this is this the source of the rumours that Microsoft/Hadoop rumours too? I also notice that SQL Server/SSIS has disappeared from the ‘software stack’ diagram; is there going to be any tie-in with the rest of Microsoft’s BI efforts?
