    Phoronix: Microsoft Begins Landing Changes For Cross-Platform Support With Their Mesa D3D12 Code

    Last month the Microsoft-backed Direct3D 12 Gallium3D driver was merged into Mesa 21.0. This is the driver for allowing graphics/compute APIs like OpenGL and OpenCL to run on top of Direct3D with Windows 10. That work to the Gallium D3D12 code has been continuing with the start of the cross-platform code now being merged...

      Did they also include an option to uninstall the windows subsystem?

        Microsoft already announce that the want Android Apps again in the MS Store powered by WSL. I hope it will end in a usable Android Support. Unfortunately my older C2D Laptop cant handle it because Google set SSE4.1 as a x86 requirement

          I wonder how long until I'll be able to run KDE on Arch on WSL on Windows 10 Pro on QEMU on Arch 🤔

            WSL2 relies upon SLAT for virtualization capability anyway inherited from it's Hyper-V underpinnings which means you weren't going to get it anyway. You need to upgrade your hardware to something reasonably relevant rather than something a decade+ old if you don't want to be left behind by software.

              No, my main Computer is something much more recent. My C2D Laptop is for everything else like try android x86, or ubuntu with anbox. But since Android require SSE4.1 for Android Builds, i did not used it anymore.

              I did search for something similar because other VM "solutions" where full of ads like Bluestacks or andy (with a bitcoin miner). and one of the biggest issue where 3D rendering was extremely slow or not possible.

                Is this worth celebrating? It means nothing for desktop Linux at all.

                  It's not, MS is firmly in the "Extend" phase of their conquest...

                    I firmly don't understand why anyone would accept the patches until DX12 runs in linux with microsoft support?
