Given that it comes from Microsoft they must have some agenda to
fulfill, I'd rather not touch this even with a 10 foot pole, just like I
try to stay away for other MS products as much as I can. The AUR is
where it should stay, but even then they can spin it as PR fodder just
like canonical spun snappy coming to Arch Linux.

Make no mistake, they are after profits and do whatever it takes to keep
the money flowing, all their friendliness to linux and open source is
tainted with patent attacks behind the curtain. The next time the
leadership changes there is no guarantee that this new found
friendliness isn't going to change.
