    That won't take you anywhere. The answer is: get cracking, Linux take the bull by the horns and don't stop until you are an actual desktop OS as good as, or better than, Windows or Macos.

      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.
      You got this so precisely (Microsoft ❤ Linux = Infiltrate, GNOME Shell = Redirect, ??? = Absorb), although isn't it the same as EEE? Because:
      - Infiltrate = Embrace
      - Absorb = Extinguish (when you absorb you exterminate)

        What am I looking at here?

          How about Microsoft works on actual interoperability. Stopping to hijack wget and curl commands on Windows PowerShell, and not aliasing them to Invoke-WebRequest would be a start. Similar to other Unix commands like ls and rm.

            It is Xaero_Vincent's pseudo-Linux Windows OS install.
            ​​​​​It is basically Windows with the shell replaced by a full-screen instance of VMWare running a Linux distro with some scripts to run Windows games from that Linux virtualized instance.
            This way he thinks he can get support for all Windows games while having a Linux desktop running.

            What is surprising is that he somehow got the Linux terminal window to appear as if it were part of the desktop instead of being always underneath (which was the case in 2017).

                This is great just replace all the Windows bits with all the Linux bits and we'll call it perfect.

                  If you just want grep, run bash scripts and stuff like that couldn't you just install git on Windows?

                    They're doing this so that you don't have to.
