I didn't say that making money was bad, I'm just saying that Microsoft isn't doing this to be nice.

>>67999568
No, they make money by maintaining good PR. Just because they decided to stop being patent trolls and release thousands of patents that are about to expire anyway, doesn't necessarily mean that much.

Everything that matters to them are still proprietary and IP with thousands of lawyers working on protecting it.

it's fucking nothing. their next money maker is azure project which will be inside every electronic device inside your home, uploading activity and health reports to microsoft so they can work directly with their vendors. they weren't even hiding it in their commercials. if you thought privacy was bad now, microsoft is about to make a lot worse in the future.

> So, what if your company has already signed a Microsoft patent agreement covering Android, Linux, or other open-source software? Well, it depends, according to Andersen, on the exact contract.

Remind me again who makes the curent best, open source cross platform, free, extensible, non autistic text editor used for programming? (Hint: programs name is vscode)

>What part of extensible don't do understand?
Yeah, please tell me more about all the wonderful extensions to vscode that allow me to use it as a frontend for GCC and use cscope instead of using Microsoft's own retarded indexing that eats 3 gigabytes trying to index the kernel source.

There's a reason why you only see hipster web monkeys using vscode, only support for JS and Python is any good. It's godawful for developing C or C++ in, especially on Linux.

>And vim is also a text editor you troglodyte.
Without extensions, sure. With extensions, it's a full-fledged IDE.

You obviously never used vscode if you think it's only good for those 2 languages, you didn't even name one of the 3 actual problems with it (and which people always complain about in /dpt/). And if you want your specific plugin for vim in it, you can literally just port it.

It's probably good for styling your CSS too.

>you didn't even name one of the 3 actual problems with it (and which people always complain about in /dpt/)
I mentioned my issues with it, I don't parrot others' opinions.

>And if you want your specific plugin for vim in it, you can literally just port it.
Are you saying I can make it use cscope instead of intellisense? Literally how?
>>

>Microsoft makes 60000 patents available to Linux-patentgroup
>Microsoft "heart" Linux

Microsoft doesn't "heart" Linux.
Microsoft wants Linux's Desktop and server userbase. Every move is to entice current Linux users and admins to switch and to keep current Windows users planted right where they want them.
Please...
a company... care about a good cause? Without a hidden motive? Were the lot of you born yesterday?

if the loonix community wasn't made up of SJW retards, autistic asocial fags who hate user accessibility and GUIs, the loonix community would BTFO windows.
>>
>>68001548
That's kind of true, but what they realy want is for the community to do their work for them like Linux. Why do you think C#, Prism, Asp, a d everything else they do is now open source? Check the virgin pages, the people fixing shit don't even work for Microsoft. On the bright side it does benefit the users so it's. To all bad. Hopefully in the future thrill open source windows.

Well the so-called SJW infiltration is a recent phenomenon. Linux has existed from the 90s. If they had Microsoft's money the last 25 years your OS would be sucking your dick right now.

I don't think that is true, because the philosophy of loonix fags is autistic as fuck, almost purposefully trying to ward off the masses from using their shit.

I don't think that is true at all. On /g/ systemd is hated, I don't even use it lol, but Linux sysadmins say it made their job hell of a lot easier. There's been a lot of work on DEs, making them more user friendly and all the major distributions have GUI package managers and system administration tools. Steam is about to make most games playable on Linux. A lot of time is being spent on graphics optimisation and stuff like DXVK.

Linux is definitely trying to be for the masses. I'm happy with my niche Void.
