Microsoft buys NPM
And no, #microsoft is not evil. It's a rational decision they have to make to draw more people to their stuff. Nonetheless, it's another case among countless examples of growing vendor lock-in. Every case in itself is not disastrous, but it will explode in our faces eventually.
@chris @NeoTheThird I hope, when you say "#microsoft is not evil", you are talking exclusively in the context of buying npm. MS: financed #CloakRoom, renewed #Github contract w/ #ICE, pays hundreds of millions to #Facebook, financed #AnyVision, spent $200k to lobby against CA's CCPA #privacy bill, etc..
@aktivismoEstasMiaLuo @chris True. What i mean is, not any more evil than most successful capitalist companies. But my point was: It does not matter wether they're evil or not. Even if they were the lovechild of MLK and Nelson Mandela, they still should not accumulate so much power over so many areas.
