    I'd believe Microsoft's new found love of open source if they made their code open.

    Their code is mostly already open and been so after being picked apart to pieces by malware purveyors as well as comedian nerds and reverse engineered by state actors.

    Me belly ached for well before Windows 10 that if they really wanted to become a force for technical O/S advancement that they needed to rewrite their source code with new innovative techniques instead of endless patchwork to needle & thread flaws in the current code
