I see lots of people arguing that microsoft's open source efforts are in good faith.

I don't believe that is possible, and I won't believe that is possible until microsoft releases critical components of their software under the (a)gpl version 3 or later.

Microsoft spent years operating under a model of Embrace Extend Extinguish, and we have no reason to believe that they have changed.

Microsoft is your enemy. The fact that they are embracing a thing you love should terrify you.

@ajroach42 Also, it's pretty obvious that they aren't doing any of this in good faith. Take VS Code - marketed as a free and open source text editor for programmers and uses the MIT license, yet the version they compile and distribute has a few things added on and a proprietary licensing agreement.
