Microsoft Edge coming to Linux

I think I read this over at itsfoss.com but why do they think that Linux users would want to use their Chromium based browser.

I can't see many wanting to use it, but if they get it added to repos, I can see people installing it if nothing else for the oddity.

Being Chromium based has garnered some attention from Linux users otherwise most see it as unnecessary.

I would guess some serious Linux users might test it but I would imagine most would just ignore it as a piece of "Windows junk".
