    The old guard dont care anymore because they can spy on you now through hardware/firmware and the internet/iot. And blackrock/vanguard owning big shares in major corporations to assert their influence. Like intel MEI engine gives full hardware access to your screens for example. We should still resist telemetry that allow key programs to search up all your info to make it harder for them at the very least.

      I really like being able to use systemd and WSL. It's nice for my development workflow since I am forced to use Windows at work, and all my servers are Linux, and WSL is certainly more comfortable than cygwin ever was.

      Though, will take some time, I am still on WSL1 since I can't seem to get network going on WSL2 through VPN.

        Yeah, I came here to post about WSL2 being essentially useless in a significant amount of corporate environments because of forced VPN tunnels.

        Give this a shot, it uses the same workaround "docker for desktop" uses.

        But for me I get issues with "file not found" because our entire user profiles are sync'd with onedrive or something, preventing WSL from being able to execute windows executables :/

          Also, I don't understand why MS hasn't purchased Canonical yet.

            No human being in their right mind would make this kind of "forecast."

              making forecast is the underlying mechanism of life, in case you didn't know

                This is awesome news.

                At the same time, pretty ridiculous - apparently we'll have systemd support sooner than them fixing IPv6 in WSL2 (which worked in WSL1 before).
