More Microsoft spin from Mary Jo Foley

Microsoft fake news

More of that "Office" slant

You look for "LINUX" news, you get proprietary software instead

Microsoft still googlebombing "Linux" a day later (for spyware)

More "Teams" Promotion Piggybacking "Linux"

3rd day of Googlebombing

  • Microsoft debuts its first native Office app for Linux

    The public preview (beta) of Microsoft Teams for Linux has landed, with packages in both .deb and .rpm formats, which should cover it for most flavours of your favourite open-source operating system.

  • How to install Microsoft Teams Linux on Ubuntu and CentOS
  • Microsoft Teams is Now Available on Linux

    The last time I talked about Working with Microsoft without a 3rd-party client was when we published on Hiri, a desktop email client for Microsoft and Hotmail. Although this was game-changing news in 2016, I’m happy to bring you news on one of 2019’s game-changers for developers.

    Microsoft Teams is a platform for unified communication and collaboration designed for workplace conversations, file storage, group video meetings, and application integration and it is now available for Linux users on any platform.

    This is the first time a Microsoft 365 app is coming to Linux desktops with all of its major features so we are all excited about it.

    Slack meanwhile reports ” 5+ billion weekly actions”.

    (Its December 4 quarterly filing shows that the company has just over 105,000 aid customers, up 30 percent year-over-year, but the company continues to report substantial losses — $95.0 million for the quarter — despite strong growth.)

Even one week later

More of this stuff

  • Teams is now available on Linux as Microsoft’s first Office Linux app

    I genuinely hope this is the harbinger of the rest of Microsoft Office also finding its way to Linux natively. LibreOffice is workable in a pinch, but for proper compatibility nothing beats the real Office (sadly). I wouldn’t be surprised if Microsoft has long had Linux versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and so on, much like how Mac OS X has been running on Intel all along before Apple made the switch.

  • Microsoft Teams Now Available for Linux

    Starting today, Microsoft Teams is available for Linux users in public preview, enabling collaboration experiences for the open source community at work and in educational institutions. Users can download the native Linux packages in .deb and .rpm formats here.

Raspberry Pi 4 Benchmarked with 32-bit and 64-bit Debian OS

The first Raspberry Pi board with a 64-bit Arm processor was Raspberry Pi 3 Model B, and all new models including the latest Raspberry Pi 4 come with four Arm Cortex-A 64-bit cores. But in order to keep backward software compatibility with the original Raspberry Pi and Raspberry Pi 2, the Raspberry Pi foundation decided to keep provided 32-bit OS image, so nearly everybody is now running a 32-bit OS on 64-bit hardware, and Eben Upton famously claimed it did not matter. We already wrote that 64-bit Arm (Aarch64) boosted performance by 15 to 30% against 32-bit Arm (Aarch32) several years ago, but Matteo Croce decided to try it out himself on Raspberry Pi 4 board first running benchmarks on Raspbian 32-bit before switching to a lightweight version of Debian compiled as aarch64.
