Another one bites the dust…

It’s a little sad, yet another Linux holdout has fallen to the Microsoft world:

In some sense it’s probably a good thing – much as I like Linux, the world is run on Microsoft and getting used to its interface is probably more useful to children than Linux.

I could theoretically see “gcc” installed on a “100 Dollar Laptop”, but Visual Studio seems out.
