Usual M$ trojectory: Embrace, extend, extinguish
I echo the other comments concerning the education sector: M$ doesn't want kids knowing how to develop on a Linux platform. Their "free" (gratis) software here is a loss leader in this respect.
Truly free software allows you to inspect how it works, change how it works, and share your changes.
What we see here from M$ is closed, proprietary software at that comes without financial cost (for now).
