You're always decrying Microsoft products, stop it...
You obviously missed my posts were I tell how I love MS Visual Studio Code. How I have been using Win 10 almost exclusively for nearly two years now. How I'm happy that Win 10 runs all the Free and Open Source software I know and love from Linux. How I think the Linux Subsystem For Windows is amazingly useful and cool.
Imagine that, the two years of "Linux on the Desktop". With Windows underneath!
The "Linux is best, Microsoft is evil" argument got very stale a number of years ago
I think you miss-characterize me.
Linux may or may not be best. Depends what you want to do and if it can do it for you. Like any other OS or other software.
Microsoft may or may not be evil.
Those are not my primary concerns.
No. My primary argument is that it is a really bad idea for all the people, companies, corporations, governments and other organizations of the world to be reliant on a single source of supply for their operating system and other software. Especially when, for most, that single source of supply is a corporation in a foreign country over which they have no control.
I could make the same case for banks, insurance companies, etc, being beholden to Oracle or IBM.
I use Windows because I can't find a usable/feature rich IBM3270 emulator for Linux and I need that for my day job.
Exactly. You make my case for me.
Memory in C++ is a leaky abstraction .
