    Necessity is the mother of all inventions.

    So many years of improvements and the kernel is still sorely lacking a descent BSOD, something had to be done ! Now Linux binaries will have their fair chances at last.

    Seriously, this is really nice, much potentials.

      Bash, Nano, Vim, Pacman, Wget can already be run on Windows, natively.

            Now THAT would be nice to have, for those Win-things you still need to use (but without the viruses or crap)
