Quite astonishing, really, when you think about how hard Microsoft fought against Linux 10 years ago.

But this

WSL enables Windows 10 to run various GNU/Linux distros inside the operating system as apps,

Is the wrong way around, for my taste. Rather the Windows as a virtual machine on a Linux system. 😉

From what I have read about windows 10, Microsoft has needed to find something that would work. Windows 10 has not been a very stable system.

A lot of people didn't like Windows 10 at all.
