    Phoronix: Microsoft Developer Shows Linux Commands Seamlessly Integrated Within Windows PowerShell

    While Windows itself has begun offering Tar and OpenSSH support among other integration improvements for traditional Linux administrators, it's possible to seamlessly integrate Linux commands within the PowerShell thanks to some features of PowerShell intermixed with Microsoft's Windows Subsystem for Linux...

    Pretty interesting. Seems like it could be seriously error-prone (especially given all the exceptions needed just to handle "C:") but I'm interested to see where this leads.

        Probably to some bastardized mutant hybrid.

        Microsoft's new strategy is Infiltrate, Redirect, Absorb.

        This is literally their strategy they used when they Infiltrated Nokia, Redirected them to make bad decisions, and then bought them at a low price to remove them from the competition pool.

            It's open source, which means that everyone including Microsoft can implement whatever they want with it. If this posed so actual threat to the Linux ecosystem (which I don't think it does, but let's pretend for the sake of the argument), there are two possible strategies to counter it:

            A. Whine; or
            B. Admit the possibility that in order to stay competitive and keep up with the competition, the Linux userland may need some radical changes in design and philosophy, since the use cases envisioned by Ritchie and Thompson may no longer be exclusively relevant in 2019.

              Nokia made most of those bad decisions on their own sticking to Symbian well after it was clear they should have switched to making Android phones. Elop, who was from Microsoft, came in well after (Sep 2010) they had already missed the boat. Android 2.2 was already out by then.

              Even the phones they had been shipping up until that time like the N8 were heavily delayed.

                  Windows has fantastic Windows Terminal and Powershell integration inside of desktop Linux. I can run all the Powershell commands I need right from Xfce or Gnome Shell! Awesome job Microsoft! Love the new feature! :3

                    ...you still using that pseudo-Linux Windows desktop?
