    Re: I mean, why though?

    Many people use Google docs,email,cloud and other services integrated with chrome so why not Microsoft services integrated with edge. It wouldn't be my first choice, but as a student Office 365 and MS services were a necessity for group project collaboration and file sharing.

    Re: I mean, why though?

    As I get much older I have found that my privacy is very important to me so I do try my best to avoid "obvious' attempts at tracking, watching, etc. Edge + Bing is known to track your key stokes and I'm sure it goes deeper than that. A quick "non Google" search of the best privacy browsers will explain everything I have failed to include about Edge but... No, just NO!

    I'll try it. I'll try it for the same reason I first started to use Linux - because I like to try new things and pick what works best for me.
    So long and thanks for all the fish!

    The answer has been passed down for ages - Follow the money.

    I always try to track the money... So, does that mean Edge will be tracking your MS Advertising ID on Linux? That's the only way to make money by giving a free (as in cost) browser out to a community that doesn't really need it.

    I can't wait to see the FSF go ballistic on this one!

    Choosing a Chromium based browser allows Edges's replacement to be a multiplatform browser

    For chromium based browsers I highly recommend Vivaldi, very polished and fast, better performance than Chrome or opera (opera is buggy on Linux, checkout their forums). But I still prefer Firefox as my default.

    I personally love to use Windows 10 and I am using it in my personal and office system. Once I try to use Ubuntu in past but it was hard to use.

    I've gone the other way. I probably troll the news websites too much in my free time. The way I see it privacy of any kind is an illusion. If they want something, they will get it. I've said this before. Too many companies caught with their hands in the cookie jar. Costs them less to pay a fine than to actually do what they tell you they do. No real incentive for them not to when the payoff is pretty much a guaranteed homerun. By the time you've got your privacy locked (theoretically) then the internet has become almost unusable because your privacy addons block the majority of the content. Damned if you do, damned if you don't. No way to win.
