Microsoft has (by far) the most active contributors to open source yet the DO survey respondents picked Google (53%) as “embracing open source most” above Microsoft (23%). Why? Likely because MS may have contributors but Google has projects like K8s and Tensorflow developers use

Yes, I’m sure that factors in. Microsoft has become such an amazingly open company, I just assume everyone has noticed. But they haven’t. Not enough, anyway

It is still cool to hate MS. Almost a badge of honor. I wrote a Quora answer about MSFT’s (successful) embrace of Linux for commercial reasons and it attracted very angry comments

This seems bizarre to me but most people aren’t actively watching the space/them and so have more reason to lag in their perceptions.

the personal and business attacks leveled at Linux during the early years created a lot of resentment that is not easy to forgive. you don't get to go around shouting about how a public work is Communist cancer for years and expect everything to be all good afterwards.

They still do terrible things though. Windows 10 is still on fire (not in a good way) and people still remember their attempt at mobile. Devs have embraced the JavaScript ecosystem for web, which locks out .NET etc. A lot of bad memories and burns that need to heal.

I now cringe whenever somebody uses “Micro$oft” . It says more about them and their inability to recognise change than it does about the company
