        If you're serious MS then at the very least open source NTFS, preferably Windows in it's entirety on GPL 3.

        Didn't think so.

          Let's be honest with ourselves, open source is a cancer, you can't make money off of free. No one should be expected to go to school for 4-5 years, spend 100+ grand, depending on the college, to earn a Bachelors degree in Com Sci just so they can give the software they write away for free.

          Yes Linux is free, and it's worth every penny we pay for it.

                Microsft needs Linux for its next Operating System accessing it freely.

Or RAM consumption is uncontrolled.
                  I'm on Windows LTSC and last week I was forced to reinstall Office because an update broke it. AutoCAD was borked as well but I could repair it. Not even their "stable," "enterprise" Windows version is free from breakage.

                  Not to mention the countless times I saw a Windows 10 installation get stuck in a bootloop and would only boot again after repairing/reinstalling. Never saw that on previous versions.

                    Yes, free operating systems have slight issues with direction, maintenance, backwards compatibility etc... but the alternatives?... ha ha ha ha ha ha

                    In 2020 the more money you pay, the worse crap you get!

                      NTFS might still have IBM code on it, and IBM sold the remains of OS/2 to other companies.

                      Most of MS's "technologies" aren't really their own. Remember that it all started when Bill Gates bought 86-DOS and renamed it to MS-DOS.
