Not too keen on the Microsoft monoculture that's been forming in frontend dev. Write code in a MS language (TypeScript) using a MS editor (VSCode) and publish to a MS platform (GitHub).

Each of these brings very powerful network effects, making it harder for competitors to enter the market, even if they're open source.

Puts too much power in the hands of Microsoft, and is just paving the way for anticompetitive behaviour a couple of years down the line.
