Because Microsoft pays better. Just business, nothing personal.

During the OOXML, Microsoft was caught red-handed giving bribes to European officials.

When somebody sticks it to Microsoft, Microsoft often uses the same tactic against it's competitors. Remember Europe saying MS had a monopoly? A few bribes later, and viola, MS competitors have a monopoly.

BTW: I think US politicians are even worse.

Or better yet, offshore the job.

No wonder US born developers are becoming an endangered species. This is spite of the non-stop shortage shouting.

Look at the job ads. Employers are looking for college degrees, and five years of recent, professional, verifiable experience. And employers will settle for nothing less, even as wages stagnate.

Maybe you have mis-identified the "bullies?"

SystemD is to Red Hat what OOXML is to Microsoft. They can claim it's "open" but really it is a vendor lock-in scam.

SystemD is a decision made by a few some execs at a for-profit corporation. It is absolutely not something the community was asking for.

I am sick of this Microsoft-like "the decision has already been made, why are you arguing? SystemD is inevitable, just accept it. Because we say so. So FU take it and shut up."

I am sick of the astroturfing bullshit constantly insinuating that SystemD opponents are just "haters" and a tiny handful of "UNIX grey beards."

SystemD is nothing less than a hostile take over of Linux by Red Hat. The entire scam is right out of Microsoft's playbook.
