All these developers going nuts about Windows getting the Linux kernel built in, when Linux has had the Linux kernel built in this whole time...


@russsaidwords Are developers going mad for it? Most I know use Linux or Mac anyway 🤷‍♂️

@mikebabb Ha, nah, I don't have my finger on the pulse of all developers. However, the semi-technical press is making a hubbub about it, so my expression was generally a reaction to their seeming overreaction.

@russsaidwords Yeah, they got pretty excited about the first iteration of "Ubuntu running in Windows" as well. I didn't get it then, and I don't get it now. If you want Linux, run Linux!


@russsaidwords @mikebabb
Well it's very useful when you have to use Windows and use other tech on Linux (like databases), you can then run all of it without messing with a VM or other.

It's like running Wine on Linux in fact.
