Microsoft discover attempts to attack the global supply chain 

Recently, Microsoft researchers un-earthed an attempt to attack the global supply chain by the players behind the SolarWind hack that affected nine governmental United States agencies.

.NET community questions Microsoft’s commitment

A recent developing storm in the .NET community could see Microsoft’s vision crumbling down due to a controversial decision made by the company. The decision has left many speculating about its commitment to the network open-source community. Microsoft detailed plans to release a feature in the upcoming NET 6 that allows consumers to get instantaneous feedback when they are beginning a project. However, the company silently pulled the plug on the feature before its release.

Following the public outcry of the feature’s retraction, Microsoft changed its resolve, stating that it made an error in executing the decision and restored the erased feature.

The company further stated that it did not intend to erase the feature instead remove its source code. However, this explanation has stirred a mixture of responses from the Net Open Source System participants as they value transparency regarding such decisions.

The company has many projects ahead with the NET community, and this would be the best time to iron out any grievances with the Net community.
