It needs to happen & now
For someone who liked Microsoft back in the day (mainly cause of their history in computing) they really, really need to be hit with an anti trust again. They were hit with the one we most probably all know about due to their push of IE on to everyone. Succeeding in killing Netscape because of their shady tactics.
Now they are doing it again. They did it with the push to Windows 10 with the pop-up. They are now doing it with Edge. Search for any other browser in Edge and it tells you Edge is better. Try to change default browser it makes you have to change each extension one at a time and tells you are you sure Edge is better
Now this. There is no reason to put the price up of SQL other than greed. Then to discover they are making it cheaper on Azure. Its clearly an attempt to push everyone to Azure so they can eventually, try and scrap the standalone OS. Its clear they'd like to push to Azure Windows where you'll have to pay a subscription fee every year.
I know they were starting it before but with Sat Nav incharge they've become even more greedy cunts.
Thank god for Linux.
