    Thanks lowflyer, that's what I wanted to know. I'd heard WSL was "just a VM under Windows", but there are still ways to bork (i.e. non-standardize) it's Ubuntu installation packages, had Microsoft tried.

    (No, seriously. Its a real question.)

    Are you not worried about building code with WSL , don't you wonder when it will become the next paper-clippy/skype/MFC and disappear ?

    - Linux : living without the win10 "forever" that is actually an expiring 9 year license key with forced upgrading.

    I am really happy that Ubuntu is partnering with WSL (World Surf League).

    Same feeling here. Kubuntu 20.04 LTS works beautifully and I plan on staying with it until next LTS. However, I too miss Unity. It my favorite DE in all aspects. KDE comes second, thankfully for canonical, because otherwise I would have changed distribution.

    But man, I still can't get it. Of all the projects that got canned by canonical, Unity was the potential and the vehicle that could take them into dimensions of different scale. Such a shame.

    Many thanks to Ubuntu and Debian. After all they are the only distro that matters in production after Red Hat.

    Phoronix: Ubuntu Had A Stellar 2020 From Ubuntu 20.04 LTS To Continued WSL, Cloud Popularity

    Ubuntu had a rather successful 2020 with the well received Ubuntu 20.04 LTS debut to continuing to make upstream improvements to GNOME, their adoption in the cloud and Windows Subsystem for Linux remaining strong, and all around Ubuntu being on steady footing across all areas of focus...
