PowerShell, the shell that Microsoft Windows uses (don’t confuse it with the command line, PowerShell is way more powerfull than that) is now Open Source, note Open Source, not Free Software. Why does Microsoft opened its Shell?.
Well, I suppose that marketing team got a hit with the “Microsoft ❤️ Linux” slogan, but the true is that no, Microsoft does not Love Linux.
Microsoft has changed a lot, but is not just because Microsoft suddenly wanted to be the good guy. Please remember how is that Microsoft become one of the most popular software companies in the world. Without taking credits of being a doer. Bill Gates bought DOS to a company, modified it and resold it as MS-DOS, that gave it the chance to surpass the others since Microsoft was not tied to a computer vendor. They needed an OS.
Microsoft presented a sneak peak of what Windows 10 well be to be honest I think this is the refinement to Windows 8 that was required.
I personally find Windows as a desktop operating system pretty good, something that is in most of the ordinal computers in the world has to have something good.
Since Windows 7 I found it pretty useful, with Windows 8 the main drawback was the lack of the start menu but with windows 10 I see that those rough corners in 8 are gone.
