Anybody else notice how Microsoft keeps digging its claws into Linux? I’m getting “embrace, extend, and extinguish” flashbacks from the early 2000’s.
Anyway, time for Microsoft Linux to buy out Canonical and SUSE and break standards so everyone has to conform to their junk, ig.
For context, Microsoft has now announced that Microsoft Edge and Microsoft Defender will be released on Linux. This announcement comes following Microsoft’s acquisition of free software hosting platform GitHub and their release of Microsoft’s PowerShell command line for Linux.
Not to mention Microsoft’s inclusion of Windows Subsystem for Linux in Windows 10, which is literally an installation of Canonicle’s Ubuntu Linux that runs on top of Windows.
Feels a lot like they are trying to muscle into Linux and get control of future development to me.
Also, friendly reminder that IBM owns Red Hat Enterprise Linux and, by extension, Fedora now.
Can’t wait for free software to lose its anarchist-friendly bent. /s
