      Too little, far too late.

      MS could have done this a decade ago, but they never believed the terminal mattered to end users. So be it.

      Mark my words, they are going to let us Linux users fix up their terminal for them, and then they will endlessly pretend they did it themselves and probably whine that they own the stuff we contribute to their closed source abomination.

      Still, they are using Github at least. About time they took an interest.

        You'd hope they would since they own it.

          Never has and never will.

          The fact that Windows and macOS are completely usable without resorting to it while desktop Linux depends on it to near ridiculous levels says it all.

            Took them only 20+ years.
            Maybe in another 20 they will come up with proper filesystem.

              You have to sign a CLA to contribute to their projects. They could close its source anytime they want.

                Everything you can do without terminal at MacOs you can do with Plasma Desktop too. I Don't know about Windows, I don't use it since XP.

                  This is not even remotely how software licenses work.
                  CLAs have absolutely nothing to do with the software license.
                  Please don't make things up.

                    Not only that, but there are tons of advanced configuration parameters in macos that you can only modify via the terminal.
