Well, I dunno. At the same time, Microsoft changed quite a lot since 2014 when Satya Netalla became CEO. It's no longer Steve Ballmer's Microsoft, far from it. I mean, look what happened to Xamarin, a company founded by Nat Friedman and Miguel de Icasa (who is well known for the GNOME project) to support Mono, Microsoft eventually bought it, pretty much merged it with their own .NET Framework and made it open source not unlike what Mono was. Friedman went on to be VP at Microsoft and later announced CEO of GitHub after its merger.

So yeah, I dunno, I think it's going to be pretty interesting on how it's going to turn out. Yeah, Ballmer-era and even Gates-era Microsoft had a pretty bad reputation they still can't get out of but I feel they're doing a complete 180° from that era and they're doing a kinda good job so far. More or less, anyway.
