Microsoft Buys Canonical And Shuts Down Ubuntu Linux OS

From the last couple of years, fossBytes has been actively covering the developments in technology and open source. You might have come across numerous articles telling how badly Microsoft has fallen in love with Linux. The first day of Microsoft Build Developer Conference 2016 looked like another familiar affair when the company announced Bash shell for Windows. 

 However, the day 2 of Build 2016 came as a surprise and shock to the open source and Linux community. At the event, Microsoft announced that it has bought Canonical, the parent company of Ubuntu Linux, and shut down Ubuntu Linux forever. 

 Earlier this week, when we reported about Ubuntu coming to Windows 10, we didn’t expect this drastic step. Today, we’ve become fully acquainted with Microsoft’s evil plan. 

 Along with acquiring Canonical and killing Ubuntu, Microsoft has announced that it’s making a new operating system called Windows L. Yes, L stands for Linux. Oh, and also, it won’t be open source.
