… but not in zynthianOS, my friends!! And i’m really angry about this!!
I just blocked the package that installs the MS repo, but if you upgraded (apt upgrade) on the last days, you could have the repo already installed on your zynthian. In such a case, i strongly recommend you to remove it ASAP.
I would like to say to the people on RBPi foundation that allowed this to happen that THIS IS NOT OK AT ALL!!. It’s a BIG error and worst, a BIG disrespect. You can’t add a repository from a 3rd party (including the GPG key!) without asking. May be you trust MS, but you don’t have the right to decide for your users. You MUST warn and ask before doing such a thing. By doing so you are allowing MS to update any package on the system, replacing it by a MS version. Probably they wont do that, but they could potentially do it. By doing such a move, RBPi foundation is loosing my confidence because they don’t show respect by users. I hope they rectify ASAP.
