      ...VSCode is not a IDE, it's just a code editor. Please don't compare it to other IDE's, compare it to Sublime text, vim, atom etc

        Hmmm.

        Released yesterdag, and now allready available in Ubuntu.
        So Ubuntu knew allready, I never have seen them act that quick.

        Makes me wonder what would happen if Mark Shuttleworth sold Ubuntu to Microsoft.
        Another cash-in I guess.

          The article doesn't say that. It says it's added to Ubuntu Make, which is software _for_ Ubuntu. It is not _in_ Ubuntu as you claim. Your assumption is that this required a massive undertaking and hence required knowledge ahead of time, which to you, prove that Ubuntu is somehow a conspiracy. But all this faith is based on nothing but faith. There is another installer, made by someone else. It's not enormous. https://github.com/segaboy/visualstu...vsinstaller.sh

          But of course, when you start to believe in the devil, you will see him everywhere. Confirmation bias.

            You know that is not that implausible.
            There may be a future where Microsoft could buy Canonical and continue development of Ubuntu.
            Ubuntu has a lot marketshare in the cloud space and Azure is the 2'nd largest cloud platform.
            Both Microsoft and Canonical have very similar visions of one OS on all device form factors, one UI that adapts to the form factor and input devices available.
            Even if Ubuntu is hugely popular, Canonical is not hugely profitable.
            Microsoft is moving more and more towards open source stuff, OUT OF NECESSITY.

            A future where Microsoft Ubuntu is a thing is not that unbelievable.
            The same way Microsoft Cyanogen was almost a thing.
            After all, there are other companies that maintain multiple operating systems.

              BS, compared to how quickly Visual Studio Code was packaged and thrown into AUR, vsc being added to ubuntu make is just slow in comparison. Packaging an application isn't rocket science.

                I assume nothing, I only look at the facts, and share my feeling about it.

                Just being cautious, and you might be right, we'll see.

                Companies working together on things that are not in the common interest isn't new, you know.

                BTW: its's funny how people nowadays seem to use "conspiracy" instead of "conspiracy theory".

                What changed ?

                  It's not really plausible. Microsoft doesn't really have anything to gain by buying out Canonical. Microsoft already has working convergence software whereas Canonical is still really just talking about it, and doesn't have any useful experience whatsoever. If Microsoft were to buy out anyone it would be SUSE because of their previous working relationships and because SUSE is the only viable competitor to Red Hat, Canonical has never actually made a profit, and even then it would only be for the purposes of Microsoft Linux for Azure. In all honesty though if Microsoft wanted to get back into the *NIX business, I'd think they'd pull an Apple and base of the BSDs.
