Microsoft has joined a conservative-led group that demands fossil fuel companies be granted legal immunity from attempts to claw back damages from the climate change they helped cause.


Thank you, #Microsoft, for sharing how many #Google services are looming in the #Chrome/#Chromium browser. I hope all projects that use Chromium take note and also start removing these. (slide was presented at BlinkOn conference)

Just found out that #Microsoft #Teams shitty search widget at the top is called "powerBar"

Is it just me or do I have an impression that I get many more hits on #duckduckgo related to #microsoft products loosely matching my keywords. Is it because their use of #Bing as one of the sources?
Обещают эффективное использование ресурсов за счет того, что какие-то компоненты Windows переиспользуются из хост-системы.

🥳#WindowsSandbox в #WIP сборке 18305 - временная виртуальная изолированная среда, "песочница" для запуска подозрительных приложений, после выхода из которой все файлы удаляются.
Это лучшее нововведение что придумали в #Microsoft за последние месяцы работы над Windows 10 #19H1👍

10 years later people actually think that it was #Google who nobly entered the browser wars to fight #Microsoft dominance.


As if #Mozilla didn't exist for the 10 years before that, keeping the very notion of multi-browser #web alive and gaining share from <1% to ~30%. #Chrome was a late-comer.
#IBM embraced #Linux for no other reasons than #Microsoft does it now, they just did it much earlier.

With the recent acquisition of #GitHub by MS and with the impending sale of #RedHat, we're again shown how quickly old, irrelevant players can utilize the cash earned by years of anti-competitive practices to erase any illusion you may have had of being able to escape them.
I like how #Microsoft wanted to save space for users by removing four 'empty' directories, instead of focusing on making #Windows produce less junk.
@saumya @aral seems like #microsoft becomes a new corporation of goodness and #google does evil

Polars are swapping
Oh boy.

"#Microsoft has stopped distributing its latest Windows 10 October 2018 Update. The software giant started rolling out the update during the company’s Surface event earlier this week, but some Windows 10 immediately noticed their documents were being deleted."

How do you fsck up an update so much that user files are deleted?
#microsoft "GitHub. That survey found that 95 percent of open source developers are men."
#github is NOT #freesw
It's just one hub among very many!

@rysiek I understand your concerns.

But what you call details are basically every dimension that describes these phenomena except for the legal one!

Indeed you can easily see how #Microsoft (!!!), #Google and #Facebook are top contributors and leaders in several #OpenSource projects!

Do you really think they are doing so as a philanthropic endeavour?

They are pushing their own agenda and their own culture and ethics to users and devs, nerd-washed through this ambiguity!

They are fooling us!
#Microsoft : "We <3 Open Source"

Also Microsoft : Open Source Browsers are slower and don't do enough about safety.


#FUD #TwoFaced #EmbraceExtendExtinguish

Microsoft ingests open code, co-opts FOSS goodwill, and spreads FUD about massive FOSS codebases.
Либо я чего-то в этой жизни не понимаю, либо для запуска (!) оффлайн (!!) установщика (!!!) .NET Framework 3.5 требуется... правильно! Установленный .NET Framework 3.5!

They aren't.

> Blender UI is pretty good

It isn't.
if #microsoft is so committed to #foss, why is their browser closed source?
as far as I can tell, all their open source projects are for developers, none of them matter to end users who know nothing about licensing
#Blender gets all their videos blocked worldwide by #YouTube. #Armory3D has their #Patreon page closed down and their backers refunded without any notice as to why. All the #FOSS projects hosted by #GitHub now have their hosting at the mercy of #Microsoft.

And this is just a few of the recent examples.

When is the #FOSS community going to learn that we need to create and run our own infrastructure as well as apps?

Support #decentralised #FOSS infrastructure! (eg #PeerTube, #tilt, #Gitea etc)
Last night @Gargron told me that he's not going to move the main repo away from #Microsoft's #GitHub!


Because 'some' corporate minded people told him so.

How's the #fork doing!?
