Then there's the announcement of "bringing DX12 to #Linux", whereas in reality it's only for WSL2, not Linux in general and it's almost entirely closed-source.
Basically, it just proxies calls to DX12 from WSL2 to the underlying Windows host, it's not some grand port.
P.S. Let's pause for a second around why they call it "Windows Subsystem for Linux", as if it's something they were doing for Linux users, whereas in reality it's actually a Linux Subsystem for #Windows. Nice newspeak there
Lastly, them renaming Xamarin Forms to the Multi-Platform App UI, (MAUI), for no reason, other than to conflict with an existing #KDE project of the same name and then closing a GitHub issue about it with basically "fuck off", should leave anyone in no doubt about how much Microsoft actually loves Linux and what their approach to the community is the moment they don't just get to throw random shit over the wall & get instant praise for it.
@MatejLach I don't think the hostilities will be quite back to normal. Microsoft has pivoted to the cloud afterall, where they don't fear us as much.
I cannot believe I seriously had conversation about this yesterday and got told on telling "fairy tales about evil micorosoft" and how they are "Just looking to improve their product".
@MatejLach sounds like we're now in the "extend" phase of EEE?
