Well something worth noting: I'm getting generally lower memory usage numbers with Edge compared to firefox. Around 100MiB less, and that's using Edge's cluttery MS homepage. Kind of interesting. May have to do with html5 which Edge handles better.

Yeah... I just meant that with all the COVID thingy, schools and other places use Skype/Teams for reunions, etc.
I didn't say I liked it, I have better things to do though than arguing with the MS drones so I just bend and move on. ;)

@TheDead  "I understand Teams/Skype could be needed" There is a lot of misinformation concerning these products, and a lot of spin doctoring by MS concerning Teams. In fact corporate business in general is very dissatisfied with Teams and its host of nagging convoluted integration problems with Office 365. At the root of the problem is the topology of modern networks, and the ill advised cost reduction activities that caused business infrastructures to run on virtual server space rather than bare metal, thus removing the option to separately virtualize infrastructure components. Instead of a few lines of NIX, sharing operations are replaced with volumes of JS, horribly convoluted UIs, and a vast sea of user permission problems. The modern corporate workplace is generally backwards now with the workstations on bare metal and the servers on virtual space. Almost makes the mainframe seem sensible again for corporate people.

Thanks to Jerry's new code MS Edge is now integrated correctly with thunderbird and opens links from email by default. It has also now gone through its 5th successful update on Linux Lite 5.x with no issues at all.

The MS Edge browser has now gone through three successful updates via the LL 5 updater. The repository seems to integrate well and function properly. Works very smoothly on Linux Lite 5.

Well so far so good. The Linux Lite 5 updater updated my MS Edge for Linux today with no issues at all along with many other system updates. Seems well integrated. Smooth fast and flawless as usual for LL.

Wasn't it the reason Linux came into being to get away from Microsoft? MS Edge would have to be the most unreliable and unsafe browser ever, but that's from personnel experience.

Microsoft account login works fine now from Linux Lite and the Edge.

@TheDead  I fear the end is near. Still I keep the faith.

On a related note :

"Fake news! Those pics are clearly photoshopped, it's part or the corporate conspiracy"... someone with bad hair and bad mouth would say!

People concerned, go and vote! Say no to bad hair! ;)

They cannot legally go IBM Unix (older court case) so expect them to go Linux either Redhat or Ubuntu as the anarchists at Debian would all quit.

Yeah I agree. By the way, MS just closed youtube-dl github repository because of a DMCA. https://itsfoss.com/youtube-dl-github-takedown/

Quote
Microsoft owned GitHub complied immediately and within 24 hours, the official youtube-dl and its forked repository were disabled as DMCA takedown.

Without each others help there ain't no hope for us :)

The biggest annoyance in any business setting with users on MS products has always been cross platform integration. Any improvement there amounts to a concession by MS. Resolving AD access in a simpler way, and being able to log into an MS account are good improvements for Linux desktop and risky for MS and their domination of the business desktop user market. I honestly expect them to bail on their single PC user desktop within the next ten years. It's dated, generally disastrously archaic, and too convoluted and inflexible to continue to be competitive. They cannot legally go IBM Unix (older court case) so expect them to go Linux either Redhat or Ubuntu as the anarchists at Debian would all quit.

100% agree with all here. Look out for MS Linux in the future. They will buy Redhat or Ubuntu in a massive deal.
