    Wtf is "ethics" anyway.

    Most people wanting opensource drivers want it because it allows maintenance to the drivers from third parties (like say all the work done by Collabora and other such paid third party paid development), so they don't break in less then a year when the Linux kernel changes.
    You don't need to be a douche... Yes English is not my native language and yes I make mistake while writing a comment, but you got a point. I am confident that you are at least that smart...

    Sure, I am a troll and you are a freaking snowflake who constantly whine if something is written to improve Linux experience but is not available for public preview. Btw, I remember one thing which went into extreme and that is switching from init-v to systemd. Even though both things are written by either community or company such as RHEL to improve Linux experience, people started to complain.... There is always one "g2dg" who will constantly whine no matter what, how it is bad and we should stick with init instead... Same thing with 3rd party software. If it works who care if it is an open source or not. If company won't be leaking your data to anyone, I don't care as long as it is stable and it works. That's a part when you grow up and start thinking about functionality instead of ideology...

If they are following ethics, I don't care, and I am quite sure that most of people does not either. If you need pure opensource, then move on to BSD, and be as limited as fck! That so called "I wanna see the code" shit is becoming boring. No one reads the code except developers who develop modules and other features. And I can guarantee that 99,9% of Phoronix users does not read each and every code (if any)... So please spare us that bull shit. Microsoft is slowly moving towards Linux and that is good, but until they release something for mass productivity such as Office suit, I am not that impressed.

    How about Skype for Business? That thing barely works on anything, and there are cases where people like me need to use it. Even on macOS, it causes trouble after it gets updated, same goes for iOS. The most reliable way to run that piece of crap for me is a Windows virtual machine with Skype running as an Internet Explorer plugin.

    At some point (due to problems with audio setup, because pulseaudio is pulseaudio) I gave up and just decided to phone into calls I was supposed to attend, simply because that's the only semi-reliable way to participate. It costed me quite a bit of money, simply because M$ is inept.
    SFB isn't really Skype. It's Lync with a gateway to the real Skype.

    You aren't using Windows, that's your main problem

    This article is not about a Microsoft Linux distro, but about providing a cilent application for Microsoft Teams, which is a teamworking suite (message and filesharing).

    tell us again, how many new devices are BSD supporting? or perhaps how many programs are made for that distro...?

    Sorry for the lame stereotyping I did while accusing you of a systemd fanboy.
    You are correct that in the most optimal solution still has to be found, and I agree that systemd is far from optimal. And as much as I hate systemd, there are people/free time developers that develop for certain distro's only, and since I do not have the time to meddle with dependencies, I suck it up and try to make the best and be out of the way of systemd as much as possible. I wish I could drop systemd off a cliff like you did :-(.

    Anyway, thanks for correcting me.
