Who could have ever guessed that naming different software the same thing would ever come back to bite them

I mean how about just not installing 5 different versions and just keeping the Theams new, its so fucking annoying in all regards.

Because they knew the new teams is a buggy piece of shit and people would need an alternative

Microsoft does this painfully often

And they are doing it again. CoPilot for Windows, CoPilot for Github, CoPilot for sales, CoPilot for Microsoft 365, Bing CoPilot. All different products with different properties.

I think their first use of CoPilot was for pairing two Xbox controllers together for accessibility. Instead of making up something new, they just co-opt it from that and now it's going to be impossible to google Copilot for Xbox Controllers issues.

Oh well, glad I made the switch to Linux.

GitHub copilot does not suck. It’s just not magic. I’m never going back to writing boilerplate and heavily patterned code myself thank you very much.
