      How about MS office and/or AD for Linux instead?
      Closed-source Flatpak is fine. Thanks.

            There are so many alternatives no one USES.
            Having the one that actually matters in the real world becoming open source is surely a good thing.

              Microsoft's technique to open-source:

              - Open something nobody really wants to see anymore (DOS, ESE)
              - Open something but make sure it is tied to Windows or something (.NET Core)
              - Use open-source and tie it to Windows with a closed knot (WSL and libd3d12.so)

                Typical Linux user: We hate Windows, we hate Microsoft, but we want your software.

                And Samba can do AD.

                  I bet Microsoft's AD customer base is demanding this which is why they are responding. Maybe they're even demanding to run AD directly on Linux which would allow them to dump Microsoft servers.

                  Somebody is demanding something that is paying big $$$. That's all that Microsoft responds to.

                    Microsoft runs a lot of Linux these days, I'm guessing they want to move some of their apps which use this storage engine to Linux. Especially in the backends for their cloud offerings.
