DirectX 12 (Linux) More data collected by Microsoft

I read that microsoft wants to help Linux to make DirectX 12 available for Linux. Checking this up i came across this github page. I am not sure if that one will be the Linux one, if so i try to avoid it.

One what i know it could be a Microsoft trying collect information how linux working and people who wrote a code then they can just using his code if his free open source also i wondering if Microsoft want in future build a "Linux Operating System" - one they have. This in generally corporation go with that to take full control on any another smaller bussiness. In other sides i know Open Suse was sold with huge amount money. That means linux exist everywhere.
