    Wikipedia continues:
    > ""Embrace, extend, and extinguish" (EEE),[1] also known as "embrace, extend, and exterminate",[2] is a phrase that the U.S. Department of Justice found[3] that was used internally by Microsoft[4] to describe its strategy for entering product categories involving widely used standards, extending those standards with proprietary capabilities, and then using those differences in order to strongly disadvantage its competitors."
    So this is the reason why Microsoft is so FRIENDLY to open source work, including Android, Linux, etc?
    Microsoft was very careful to not allow Apple to legally disappear, early in Apple's life. USA federal systems are supposedly hostile to dictatorships, business or otherwise.

    Security for who ?
    I am not against embedding a TPM chip in CPUs, most industrial SOC have something pretty similar. But automatic updates from the cloud (full stack implies this not done from the OS) ???
    Brick PCs from a certain country at will, slow down PCs, affect their realtime performance, heck no, I don't want any company to have that power, much less one that certainly has to bow down to the NSA.

    Pluton will be interesting. It is really about time that the new RISC-V CPU's and boards come out and be affordable.
    Time to change architecture after all.

    The way I see it, they will do a new "UEFI" and Intel ME type stuff that will be even harder to get rid of in the future.
    Once they have that in, they will probably add a backdoor chip for the secret services of everywhere to connect. Of course, that will be all in the name of counter-terrorism and preventing child pornography and stuff.

    Edit: Intel has been doing stuff like this for quite some time, from their presentation at Blackhat 2019:

    How is WSL faster than bare-metal! This makes no sense unless Microsoft is paying Canonical to make Ubuntu slower on purpo-

    .....
    I think this is complicated. I looked up test description, and it says it measures performance, energy and power. I am not sure how it works, but I can imagine some component on the platform benchmarked drawing more power on Ubuntu but not on WIndows, resulting in worse results for Ubuntu in that test.

    What I'm mostly interested in is the io performance when accessing the Windows filesystem in WSL2 on Windows 10 vs 11. That has been the biggest problem with WSL2 so far, really crappy io performance in /mnt/c. Hoping it will be better in Windows 11.
    That is one of the specific use cases that WSL1 is recommended for, and is the reason I use WSL1.

    Interesting. I wonder how performance will fare once WSL2's path is excluded in Defender.

    Considering this is a sort of virtualization, WSL2 has a really decent performance. Filesystem performance in terms of dealing with small files is lower but that's always been the case probably because of the way ACL is implemented in Windows.
