"We on the @MSEdgeDev team are fleshing out requirements to bring Edge to Linux, and we need your help w/ some assumptions," wrote Sean Larkin, a member of Microsoft's Edge team.

Now why would they do that for an OS they have spent many years calling "A Toy OS",  MS patent violating, viral and unAmerican?  Having done all that why would they expect help in porting a Chromium based Edge to Linux?  Why not just use Chromium without all the MS spyware or Firefox like I do?

Windows has produced too many sub-standard operating systems to be trusted.  My last 4 new computers were ME, XP, Vista, and Win 8.1.  The ME computer was actually pretty good and was the last stable computer I owned.  Why shouldn't Linux be catching?

Seriously, Between G-parted and ubuntu, being a huge part of my tool kit these days, I doubt I could get anything done.
