Putting on my tin-foil-hat now: It seems that all this cultural upheaval has been carefully choreographed for the sole purpose of disrupting American society for the benefit of...

The Left started putting more and more of their...

Under Nadella's leadership, Microsoft has a discovered a new enthusiasm for open-source software, leading it to join the Linux Foundation and build support for GNU/Linux directly into Windows 10.
