Windows Subsystem for Linux is a horrible, pointless initiative... unless you're Microsoft.
Microsoft has built its $trillion business on *controlling the platform* and exploiting its users. Windows is slowly decaying, and, tellingly, the crucial developers Windows needs to stay relevant... are moving to Linux, and few look back.
@lightweight All the FOSS initiatives by Microsoft, revolves around helping its own business. They never give a damn about anything, until it brings them business prospects.
@lightweight Right, when I talk to people, I try to use the term "Free Software" & give a pep talk about it, before explaining about the actual program. It'll be annoying, but better in the long run.
