Are they fucking kidding me? 😮
No, they are apparently not. 🙂 But … read on.
Yes, we all know that MS is indeed a huge code contributor to Linux. Always has been. And lately the touchy feely cozy course Nadia Nutella steers the MS ship in direction of Linux is even kinda creepy. Because … yes, because Microsoft. Whatever they do or say they’ll always have their own interest at heart in the first place. No matter how often Nutella claims he loves Linux, let’s not forget he will cease the official support as soon as he got out of the Linux project what he needs in order to strengthen Windows. In the same light we gotta view MS’s membership in the Linux Foundation. It’s probably so they become the major partner in that setup and wield their influence over Linux’ further development.
So let’s not get too happy and dough-eyed about our new-found ally, let’s not cozy up to them fuckers. They can’t be trusted!
