Comment Microsoft is not looking out for your interests (Score 1) 1215

I stick with GNU/Linux and other FOSS software because it is an investment in our future. If you are forced to use MS products for your job, then you have little choice. I make my living with GNU/LInux, partially because I understand it well enough to be an expert. I understand it that well because I have the source code for everything, including the kernel.
Microsoft only cares about customers to the extent that they can exploit them for profit. Compare that to ethics of the Free Software Foundation.
