    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...

    Guys grow up, this news is good news for everybody!
    As an Arch user for over 10 years now, I really respect and appreciate the WSL efforts.
    Of course it's going strong still in 2019. Microsoft is only at the power position that they are in the industry thanks to their shady business practices, that is just not something that you can let go just because they now hands out some candy to the poor, especially since the only reason they can hand out that candy is since they stole it to begin with.

    Or Cygwin?

    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.
    Sticking with Symbian wasn't too bad. What was bad, however, was that they let it stagnate. Had they done as much with Symbian as Google did with Android, I'm pretty sure it would've been the 3rd major OS and still be competitive to this very day.

    Never trust this man especially if he offers you sweeties.

    Actually it is. Here is the kernel used by WSL2: https://github.com/microsoft/WSL2-Linux-Kernel
    They are using thing kernel on top of that they are using different distributions container images, and boot all thing in thin VM on Hyper-V.
    So they not violate anything.

    For WSL1 they are implemented compatibility layer inside the NT kernel, who translates Linux Syscalls in to Windows - so they not violate anything there too.

    Actually MS are contributing patents and technologies to OpenSource lately - for example exfat implementation, 60,000 patents etc. - So it is not so bad

    Being stuck with Windows at work... I like the WSL1 thing (in combo with mintty), it has far less annoying quirks than a full VM or Cygwin.
    So I can happily work in vim and compile from within vim a windows program without having to deal with the crap windows vim or wine to build.

    All Linux at home though and Windows can suck the big one if they want to weasel there way into there.

    No, it isn't. https://github.com/microsoft/WSL/issues/1 (Interesting note: it's the first issue created)
