Microsoft’s Brad Smith on the topic of open source

Microsoft President Brad Smith acknowledged that the company ’was on the wrong side of history when open source exploded at the beginning of the century and I can say that about me personally.’ The Microsoft veteran, who joined the company before it was hit by antitrust litigations in the nineties added that ’The good news is that, if life is long enough, you can learn… that you need to change.’

Windows 10 will soon become the longest running OS in Microsoft’s history, surpassing Windows XP. Perhaps Microsoft will finally embrace the superior security, reliability, and performance of Linux (and Unix). The linked article indicates a move in that direction.

Communist activists are not reporters not journalist they are activists pushing the revolution. The article could have been enlightening but the agenda of the activist was to push communism as the solution to all the worlds problems. Please for the love of God stop publishing these trust fund maladaptive children nonses. The article is chalked full of marxist rhetorical bull shit.
