Hopefully this will be clear enough and show that : Well that is your way of understanding what I said, while I never said that it cannot run locally neither I said that it will be run by Microsoft, though it probably will if it get popularized. Microsoft have filed patent for LSP languag server protocol: https://uspto.report/patent/app/20190149346 Why should Emacs develop and be built on protocol that Microsoft wish to protect as their own, to control and use to subjugate population of developers? Emacs is free software and shall remain far dubious activities of Microsoft. You can tell me how everybody can host one's own website, but reality is that people don't. Everybody can host one's own code, software, git, packages, but reality is that people don't and majority look for gratis solutions online. Corporations take over the control and have to earn money somehow, so they trap users into their strategies. Just as git can be decentralized and installed on many various online servers, it is rather not and it is centralized on Github mostly that further traps developers by their proprietary eye candies. In general Github/Microsoft take away specific control and freedom 0 from users to run the software as they wish: https://sanctum.geek.nz/why-not-github.html When such tool that takes away computing becomes popular by marketing and advertising it will be definitely offered by largest corporations, which in turn will trap developers in future to their online tools and online server side computing, it opens plethora of future privacy issues, centralization and control from entities like Microsoft and others. It really does not matter that it is all nicely packed into marketing pitch about "open source" and "helpful to developers" and that it is now not centralized and that people find it good. Marketing from those corporations created that environment of acceptance that computing may be taken away. Their marketing pushes that people adopt LSP as from God granted. And people currently do not see that flying to the source of light will not let all flies survive. Microsoft NEVER does any move in the public without having clearly defined strategy on how to gain control over people's computing. Jean See the future.
