Veliki put je Microsoft prešao od ozloglašene Ballmerove rečenice "Linux is a cancer" do onoga što je nedavno izjavio Microsoft CTO Lee Hickin "We're an open-source company now".

"And I say that with my hand on my heart in a very serious way: We are an open source company, we are committed to open source, we're committed to Red Hat, and we're committed to continuing our engagement and our support to a broad open source community through a range of technologies, not least of which GitHub is one."

Postoji, naravno, ne tako mali broj skeptika u OS zajednici koji u ovome vide opasnost, nekada podilazeći totalnoj paranoji oličenoj u navodnoj paklenoj nameri Microsofta: Embrace, extend, extinguish.

Šta će biti možemo da nagađamo. Meni se ipak neuporedivo više sviđa Microsoft danas nego pre recimo 15+ godina. Svakodnevno koristim Visual Studio Code za posao/programiranje (na Linuxu) i veoma sam zadovoljan kakav je OS alat MS napravio.

Bilo kako bilo, jedno je izvesno, što bi Dylan rekao: " The times, they are a-changin' "...

Evo i Linusovog komentara...

"The whole anti-Microsoft thing was sometimes funny as a joke, but not really. Today, they're actually much friendlier. I talk to Microsoft engineers at various conferences, and I feel like, yes, they have changed, and the engineers are happy. And they're like really happy working on Linux. So I completely dismissed all the anti-Microsoft stuff."
