Currently trying to decide whether it is better to show a petulant, childish message when someone tries to download a browser that isn't yours, or to just not allow anyone to download a browser that isn't yours at all

I’d say Microsoft should be ashamed but when it comes to preferencing its own browser in Windows, history has shown us that Microsoft has no shame. Embarrassing that it has so little faith in Edge (which is good) that it’s resorting to shenanigans. theverge.com/2021/11/15/227…

Not a great leading indicator when the person in charge of the hostile product decision gets promoted to lead up the whole dev division, including GitHub. One of the worst parts of devrel is when management decides to ring the register and sell off the earned developer trust.
The recent open source moves by Microsoft are interesting. On one hand, I love the power of a vocal community; on the other, I hate to see community/devrel teams left to clean up after a bonehead decision from an executive who is clearly disconnected from the reality of the work.

GitHub isn't Open Source, and it's acquisition by Microsoft was not proof of their commitment to Open Source as a movement. There are other things that indicate a meaningful change in respect of the movement. ASOP is an "Open Source Project" in name and software license only.

"yeah I worked 90 hours a week, destroyed my marriage, and didn't watch my kids grow up but hey we shipped an important product" "ah well at least you're rich now" "oh no, no no no, but i have the satisfaction of having made other people rich" completely deranged

Why would anyone be proud of this?
Sadly, there were divorces and broken families and bad things that came out of that. But I also learned that even at a 20,000-person company, you can get a team of 100 people to work like their lives depend on it.

If Microsoft loves open source, then just make Copilot open source. It would be the bare minimum fair thing to do since without all that open source training data set, they would not be able to build it. But no, they want to monetize it.
