    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).

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

    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 :/

    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.

    And I think there's a pretty clear link between the departure of the old guard, and the major shift in focus that we've seen from Microsoft since then. De-emphasising software sales and the Windows platform in favour of services was necessary, but not something that could easily have occurred while the founders were still around.
    Yeah, MIcrosoft doesn't care what OS you run anymore. They're more than happy to help you run Linux as long as it gets them some sweet, sweet Azure / O365 subscription money. Heck, they also just released some hooks to allow Ubuntu / Linux to tie into Intune, do AAD auth and allow for conditional access policies. Personally, that's a game changer to allow me to keep running Linux in a corporate Windows world. see: https://www.anoopcnair.com/intune-su...rollout-guide/
