This is Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella’s second big acquisition, following the $26.2 billion acquisition of LinkedIn two years ago.

@circular, you can remove Windows directly. Try using Wine or a VM. With FPCUpDeluxe you can cross compile, so no need of keeping a separate Lazarus IDE on Windows.

If you use Visual Studio, maybe as well need to try another IDE that's open source. I'm using VS Code, (that's from microsoft...) but you can use Atom that's the father of VS Code (but thinking it twice, now it's from Microsoft as well...).
Hmm I tried installing a virtual machine on Windows to run Linux and it was very slow. I would be surprised the contrary would be fast. Also I don't have a CD as there is none anymore. I saw that it is possible to download an ISO, so I'll give it a try.

I am not against using Microsoft software, in fact I like Visual Studio. What bothers me is to be in a Microsoft prison. It is not an uncommon practice in businesses of course. Thankfully there are some cross platform tools like Lazarus.  :-*

@plGrimm: ReactOS seems like a great project indeed.

And yes, you're right. Visual Studio is not in Linux, that's the problem if you're used to work with it.

Is VMware free? I thought it wasn't.

I've just checked the Wikipedia. VMware (Workstation) Player is free for non-commercial use, the non free version has more features. I'll stick with VirtualBox and Wine.

Ok well trying on VirtualBox on Linux, it does not seem so slow. However, the same problem happens again: lots of stuff is running and installing in the background. There's Cortana, Windows Search, OneDrive, etc. There may be some services that turn them off but they don't have the same name. And I can't even remove Cortana from the bar because it says my license key is not valid.

No really I am tired of Windows 10.

At least I can now safely run it from within a virtual machine. So that's for that.  :)

I install classic shell on my windows 10 systems, You can quickly switch between a Windows 7 type layout and a Window 10 ( constantly changing desktop).
http://www.classicshell.net/

My pet hate with windows 10, is no matter what you remove, on the next update they come back with even more bloatware/adware; I call it this because I did not ask for it or even had the option of whether i want it).
Sometimes you restart you machine and it does not look anything like it was when you turned it off.  This even applies to Cortana, you disable it, kill it and next update all your customizations are reset and the damn rubbish comes back.

I liked windows when you had control, not someone elses view on what you should have and how it should look and behave.

Oops sorry this is not a windows Bash :) :P

@circular, it depends, VM Ware is fast, and Virtual Box is slow.

With what?  For me VB was much faster going from vmware player to VB due to paravirtualized Linux.

If somebody has both, on what system is a FPC snapshot build faster?

I've used both, VM Ware and Virtual Box, in both sides, Windows to Linux, and Linux to Windows.

And VM Ware "looks" faster (that's the true word), I mean the UI is more responsive than with Virtual Box. About compile time of FPC, I've not tested it because I usually cross compile. I only test the final executables in the VM's.

I have an i7 too, and I recognise that VM Ware works faster in the visuals.

Maybe because the GeForce, I don't have one. I'm with the Intel HD Graphics.

You can run 3D software on the VM in VirtualBox? DirectX 10 for example?

Thanks. I need to upgrade my machine, then I can say if with a better machine VirtualBox works fine.

With my current machine, I can only run fine VM Ware.
