    Phoronix: NVIDIA, Intel Post New Windows 10 Graphics Drivers For WSL2 Linux App Support

    Intel and NVIDIA have both published new Windows 10 graphics drivers that support the new experimental capabilities coming to Windows Subsystem for Linux 2 (WSL2) for running Linux GUI applications atop Windows and ultimately for exposing GPU compute capabilities as well inside the WSL2 environment...

    How long before Nvidia says "we only support Linux on Windows"?

      Can you remember who was the first GPU maker to offer Linux support that didn't require a PhD to use?

        It doesn't matter if they support it or not. All middle managers *know* that Nvidia on WSL works best!

          3dfx
          With full open source support.

            So, Microsoft has seen Linux as a potential threat as ML developers might choose the platform in windows detriment.

            Now, they've managed to implement a compatibility layer so that the developer stays on windows.

              pretty sure it's already bouncing around their heads, with regard to their non-desktop clients. but it depends on how the actual users of this tech react.

              ML is probably a major thing that microsoft will now try to take away.

                I don't imagine that having a phd hanging on a wall ever helped anyone get a home/office desktop video card working. Probably more of a detriment.

                  ...Which leaves AMD as the only option for Open Source and Linux enthusiasts.
                  As a matter of fact, between Intel's security deficient CPUs and Nvidia's expensive RTX line-up, I would avoid both even if I was running Win10.

                    Especially if the PhD is in philosophy but if it doesn't work at least you can be philosophical about it.
