The only Microsoft threat protection we need is keeping Microsoft the hell out of Linux.

I believe the next step is to "convince" distributions to require it by default (for their security) and not function without it like systemd.

That Microsoft can only collect data from windows users is clearly a problem, and I think that's a great solution.

Edit: Oh and reminder that Microsoft Edge is also coming to linux, remember to switch browser when it's ready. I'm sure it'll integrate well with Microsoft Defender to protect you when you download dangerous .doc files before opening them in Microsoft Office for Linux.
