Embrace, Extend, Extinguish

The young generation (younger than me) does not know what Microsoft is and how it operates. The company changed logo (marketing and CEO). That’s it.

How long before bash on Vista 10 has some Windows-specific ‘features’ or ‘extensions’ that make bash scripts GNU/Linux-incompatible?

Microsoft can try to do to bash etc. what it previously did to all sorts of potent rivals. It’s called Embrace, Extend, Extinguish.

“Do encourage fragmentation of the Java classlib space.” -Ben Slivka, Microsoft (internal, antitrust subpoena)

“Don’t encourage new, cross-platform Java classes, especially don’t help get great Win 32 implementations written/deployed.” -Microsoft
