But these days you can run the Microsoft Edge browser natively in Linux.
You can run Microsoft SQL server natively in Linux/
You can run VScode natively in Linux.
There was Microsoft Teams application that natively ran in Linux, but it has been deprecated.
You can of course run Microsoft Office 365 in your browser on Linux.
You can develop in mono and dotnet natively on Linux now.

In particular, for example:

But what I said was supposed to be a joke, like, "I want to be the first kid on the block to..."




There is also this:

They're asking almost 1800 Euros from where I come from for something that looks flimsy. OK not 3000USD but still an excessive cost.
