Microsoft's CEO Satya Nadella recently announced that Microsoft has become a completely open source company. Which means now you can grab all its software such as Windows and the Microsoft Office for free. Even you can get the sources too. Nadella also added that the company is looking to expand its cloud business further.
While many people were worried about Microsoft’s secret intentions, the Linux Foundation director, Jim Zemlin, also said that “Microsoft is a changed company.” But actually, nobody thought that Microsoft could ever become a completely open source company–not until today.
Recently, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella announced that all Microsoft software are open sourced and the users can freely download them. Just in case you’re wondering, this open source list of software which already had Powershell and .Net Core 1.0 now also includes Windows 10 operating system and Microsoft Office productivity suite.
BTW, It was an April Fools’ Day prank, which is quite obvious. No matter Microsoft expresses tons of open source love.As it is not going to be a fully open source but we can expect that Microsoft will work on this soon. If you liked this prank just share this and make your friends laugh.
