Here we go again. " The Day AppGet Died" - the short version: OSS developer fills a hole in the Windows ecosystem, Microsoft offers him a job to work on this kind of product inside the company, ghosts him, releases their competing product which appears to have borrowed heavily from his designs, doesn't attribute original developer's work, Internet gets mad, Microsoft gives a non-apology apology, and maybe some kind of resolution.
