Well I have been very careful not to put across the idea of avoiding Microsoft's stuff because Microsoft is evil but I would also never suggest locking yourself in with *any* software vendor.
Soon, you'll be able to run an entire Ubuntu Linux environment right inside Windows 10
Well, you could do this with the Microsoft Interix subsystem too until Microsoft removed it. Any reason why they won't do the same with this subsystem once the Ubuntu hype has died down? I want my tools to last thus the reason why I often choose open-source software.
Believe it or not, "old Microsoft" is basically dead and buried
I think the worst thing is... Bring them back!!! I don't want 30 day developer licenses, I don't want store apps, I don't want forced windows updates, I don't want random data being sent to the internet, I don't want Visual Studio logins, I don't want locked down tablets, I don't want ... (oh god, I really could go on forever).
I like the new Windows terminal emulator though ;)
