Nope. Because fractional scaling, Excel, Word, Visual Studio, LTspice, Fusion 360, power management and GTA V actually work then.

I'm a Linux developer / admin / operations person by day as are a lot of my colleagues. There are no Linux desktops here at all, out of choice.

Like I said....

That's how we know you're a masochist.  :)

The desktop war is over. Linux's won. Now we can finally turn our Linux installs into a Windows sithole™.

Meh. It’s chrome with a skin and Microsoft’s shit instead of google in it. Google and apple already did the legwork.

What is even more scary is some miserable excuse for a human ported PowerShell over to Linux. That’s like walking into a synagogue with a nazi uniform on.

That's not at all scary compared to when a bunch of otherwise sane people start touting it as the next best thing since sliced bread.

And then all distros decide to make it the default shell from now on.

Nothing new, this is all the standard Microsoft-style "Embrace, Extend, Exterminate" procedure.

Were you guys not around for the Halloween Documents?   ;)

(Not that it wasn't already obvious...)

Microsoft Deepens Its Investments in Java

“For the past 23 years, the Java Community Process (JCP) program has guided the specification of the Java platform in cooperation with the
international Java developer community. The JCP program welcomes participation and membership from corporate, open source, individual,
and Java User Group participants. We are delighted to welcome Microsoft to the JCP program; it continues to represent the vibrant Java ecosystem.
We look forward to seeing their contributions.”


“The JCP is the place where we define and discuss the future of Java, and where we need the collaboration of all the Java community”,
adds Bruno Souza, President of the SouJava User Group, an Executive Committee Member of the JCP. “Microsoft has been an important
part of this community, with their involvement in OpenJDK but also supporting Java User Groups and community events. Because of all that,
Microsoft has become a strong partner of SouJava and we are excited to have them go even deeper on their commitment with the Java community.”

So, should we take this as a hint to the future death of Java? :-DD

IKR. MS pays too much for Skype prior to a worldwide situation that has never before depended on so much video conferencing. So what did people use? Zoom.

hahahahahahaha

I noticed that a Windows 10 update recently installed Skype, whether I have any interest in it or not, and now pesters me if I do not have a Microsoft account.

Looks like windows is going the android way. The only thing still missing is a Linux-based kernel...
