Hi everyone! Hope you're all having a nice life! :)
In a recent update, the Raspberry Pi OS installed a Microsoft apt repository on all machines running Raspberry Pi OS without the person’s or admin’s knowledge. Every time a Raspbian device is updated by having this repo, it will ping a Microsoft server.
I don't own a Raspberry, but still...

The comments clear a few things up - not necessarily making this a good thing, but maybe making it slightly better.
