Microsoft's New Approach! - Will it benefit Linux? -:- Poll Results

      Today, we're launching a new poll, and this time it's focused on Microsoft's relationship with Linux. This is based on the latest news and events in the last few weeks.

Brief introduction...

       The latest news related to the Redmond company, are at least startling... - Perhaps more for an Linux user than Windows. - Why? Well, here's a series of events made by Microsoft that left Linux users open-mouthed:

  1. The arrival of the SQL Server database for Linux.
  2. The company union with Eclipse Foundation and Visual Studio integration with Eclipse
  3. Microsoft launch SONIC,  a sort of fork of Debian to manage network infrastructures. 
  4. Visual Studio Code, support SSH PowerShell, Azure Cloud Switch (in which Sonic is based)
  5. Visual Studio Code Open Source
  6. Debian Azure. 
... and, this is just the beginning!

       - The change of behaviour from Microsoft, will be beneficial for the Linux world?
       - Do you believe in the good intentions of the Redmond company?
       - Microsoft are really in love with Linux?

       So many questions that arise, but, you can express your opinion by voting, and for the first time, feel free to comment in the poll form. There is now available, a section that allows you to comment about this, and for that just click the Next button.
