This wouldn’t be the first time Microsoft had shown interest in combining Node.js with ChakraCore. The company did so in a test back in May of 2015. The software giant came away confident that it would work just fine, so the push to have it added officially is the next big step.
In recent times, we’ve seen great strides from Microsoft to become closer to the open source community, but only time will tell if this move will work out in the long run.
