@tindall what's disgusting to me is that it reeks of "embrace, extend, extinguish", which msft is notorious for doing. I'm sure it'll further win over a few more linux users to use a few more msft products now that they run on linux.
then the next machine they get will have windows installed from their IT department, and they can goto the Windows Store to install Ubuntu for all their linux needs!
then they'll develop amazing improvements to Ubuntu which won't work in the linux kernel and only work on WSL.
then developers will dev on top of WSL first, and linux kernel will rot
then Microsoft's stock goes up 2%
sounds like a win in the corporate books to me.
A cool and chill place for cool and chill people.
