What the F*** is doing in my Pi's apt sources list. This is some bitter irony - I use this almost exclusively for . I was wondering what all the hype was about recently and now it's clear. Where can I find out more about why this has happened and what, if anything, is being done about it?

@syntax You mean there is some microsoft URL in the /etc/apt/sources.list file? Which distro, is it plain debian or something else?


@eliasr Raspbian has added "packages.microsoft...", mainly for VS Code, I think. The main cause for concern being that 1) They didn't tell anyone this would happen (as far as I know) and 2) Microsoft knows (and collects data about) every time you run `apt update` etc. with that list enabled.
