Yes, it's been an interesting few years,  with Microsoft buying GitHub and IBM buying RedHat, MS providing 
WSL, and both of them contributing new software and improvement s back to the open-source world (such as 
MS's Visual Code editor).

My prediction is that MS will stop development of their own operating system kernels, and move their 
Windows-10, Windows-11, graphical interfaces to sit on top of the Linux kernel.
