Microsoft is so insidious... they're worming their way into every major language community and are doing their absolute best to ingratiate themselves with the FOSS community while they continue to destroy computing for consumers
Microsoft and Apple are the main reasons we still have a "priestly class" of software engineers and I don't care how many streams they do with cool developers and engineers, they still suck and you still shouldn't work with them.
And like, yes, it's all fine and good that they're better than other tech companies with diversity, and that they do a lot of developer outreach, and whatever. But they are still responsible, in large part, for the absolutely sorry state of computing.
That's forgivable! All they have to do is make an effort! Make the desktop less hostile, open up their APIs and middlewares, stop making exclusivity deals with hardware and software vendors. But they never will.
@tindall Oh yeah, I remember there was even a term for it back in the day: E3, "Embrace, Extend, Extinguish." Funny how things change... Or not.
