At its Build 2015 developer conference, Microsoft has announced a new member of its Visual Studio family of products, a code editor called Visual Studio Code. It is a cross-platform, lightweight environment that developers can use to do basic tasks from any machine running Windows, a Linux distribution, or OS X.
During the keynote, Microsoft was demonstrating Visual Studio Code running on Ubuntu. Considering the Microsoft from yore that we all remember, this was such a surreal experience, my heart actually skipped a beat. This is a huge victory for open source and the Linux project in particular, after all these years of FUD from Microsoft.
Today, Linux won.
