Claims Microsoft copied his work

Was even in for an interview.

According to Keivan Beigi, the developer of AppGet, Microsoft has copied its program with Windows Package Manager that was unveiled at this year's Build Fair.

Microsoft was interested in trading AppGet
We wrote about the platform, more specifically a GUI version of the program developed by a third party.

Now, there is news about Windows Package Manager once again, but in a completely different way: Beigi explains that Microsoft knew about AppGet before revealing its own solution.

The company first wanted Beigi to participate in the development and was called in for an interview.

Heard no more until Microsoft announced its own solution
Six months after the interview, he heard no more, until Microsoft sent an email the day before Build saying they regretted not getting the position and that the company was going to show its own version on Build.

Microsoft also promised to credit him for the work, which is based on open source, but Beigi was only mentioned in the same sentence as a number of other developers and not specifically mentioned, though he thinks AppGet is very similar to what they themselves chose to do.

Claims Microsoft destroyed Windows Store
"Am I upset that Microsoft, a $ 1.4 trillion company, finally managed to launch a decent package program for their flagship product? No, they should have done it many years ago. They shouldn't have destroyed the Windows Store like they did. "

The developer is not surprisingly disappointed with what has happened and writes that he will finish development and shut down the service on August 1.

Microsoft says they are sorry for the situation that has arisen and that they should take around internally.
