In June of 2019, Microsoft will release its second version of the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL from here on out). This will have full compatibility with Linux drivers, snap packages, Docker, Kubernetes, and so much more.
This is a fully licensed GPL of the Linux kernel. Reports are estimating it is performing up to twenty times faster than the first WSL. Native filesystem support and container support are featured as well!
No more Hyper-V for Docker on Windows. w00t! CAN I GET AN AYYYMEEENUH?!
It’s FOSS is over 9,000% assmad lmfao
Things are only going to get better from here. Apple has left a huge dent in the developer space by removing the escape key and other functionality. Microsoft is capitalizing on their shortcomings and failures in full force.
It is going to be The Year of the Linux Desktop. Thanks Microsoft!
