Whoops. Except he isn’t:
“The whole anti-Microsoft thing was sometimes funny as a joke, but not really. Today, they’re actually much friendlier. I talk to Microsoft engineers at various conferences, and I feel like, yes, they have changed, and the engineers are happy. And they’re like really happy working on Linux. So I completely dismissed all the anti-Microsoft stuff.”
A really good interview into the insights of Microsoft cooperating and even contributing to Linux kernel development. No mentions of privacy or telemetry, indicating that Linus Torvalds has nothing to hide, therefore nothing to fear?
I am really excited about this new formed positive attitude from the leader of Linux. The possibility of Microsoft userland with Linux kernel will make an incredible development, media, and gaming platform. Microsoft is doing everything right, and even the Linux maestro is taking notice.
Keep up the great work, Microsoft.
