Microsoft should utterly dominate Linux to the point it replaces all the core developers with proper MS developers and imprisons Linus Torvalds in a well locked X box... Linux users should obviously be replaced with Windows users..... Android fans should be fed to Apple fans and vice versa.... As there are so few Apple fans compared to google fans google fans will be fed to any windows users that require pizza or quiche.

I'm trying to flush out your proficiency and expertise. Your recommendation that someone stop using putty in favor of Ubuntu sounds like knowledgably information, except at that point in time W10 had SSH baked into it for a long time.
Joe Collins (9 hours ago)
. My friend needed more than just SSH... He also needed some of the tools Ubuntu had to offer. You could have just asked me why I recommended Ubuntu instead of being a dick about it. Flush out? WTF.

Microsoft is eventually going to distribute windows for free. It's been a long time since desktop operating systems stopped being a business. Hell, desktops are going the way of the dodo. Indeed, the real money maker is distributed computing. Anything that facilitates cloud computing development within windows itself is more than welcome, and if you can't port all the Linux toolset, well then, just port Linux to windows so you can run Linux binaries.

I've messed with Linux since about RedHat 3 or 4. Tried a lot of Linux's but found that it was too difficult to do things like Netflix. Now that all that streaming out there works I switched to Linux Mint and have loved it. Not sure if I should have gone the Debian Mint route but anyhow so far so good. No more intrusive updates or notifications from MS.

Why i love linux(in a programming perspective): It is light. One can easily see the source code and learn whats going on under the hood or customize it.(its my computer im responsible for everything). It has a good community support. it has many bugs but It worths finding out. Microsoft windows is the opposite: Abstractions over abstractions, too much gui, unnessary programs thats slows down pc,its updates. Im always taken care of too much. Now is windows trying to fake a linux with all its concepts behind? but I still have windows in pc for games. its the only plus point.

I really love linux (and to a degree mac os for the terminal and unix compatibility) but I haven't yet found replacements for all my Windows only software that doesn't work with wine such as NI Multisim that I use for electronics projects and premier pro. Also, linux doesn't like to switch between my intel and nvidia graphics on the fly like windows does, maybe nvidia will roll out a driver for linux that fixes that issue.

About 40 yrs. ago Microsoft sold a UNIX called XENIX. It ran on the Radio Shack Model 12 and 16. Also there has been for the past 20 yrs. or so CYGWIN, a utillity to provide a UNIX shell to MS-Windows. So nothing new here.

2018 Microsoft adds the Linux kernel into Windows 10. 2018 IBM buys RedHat.
sorry but putty is the WAAAY beter option, and I dont get where thewre shoud be problems. It is way to unesary complicatet to use the windows subsystem. There is literly only one differnece, and that is that you have to run a comand after su ing into outher user. It is really usefull for Runing linux only programms or programms who work better/easyer on linux.

If Linux is open source and their code is being used in Windows, and Windows is charging for their OS isn't that kind of making money off open source code??? I thought if any open source code was used in a program/project you couldn't make money of said program/project.

Microsoft should abandon the NT kernel in favor if the Linux kernel and build a Windows compatibility layer and adapt their own UI to work on it. Maintaining all of that code long term has no business value. It's money Microsoft could spend on better things.

Every time Microsoft shows "interest" in something, they steal or take it... Example, when they showed interest in a messenger application, they played with it for a year then announced their very own "Microsoft Messenger" one year later. Much like Apple, they don't innovate, but simply steal from others, play with it and make it their own.

Prediction - and we all know predictions are always right every time, right? Microsoft will buy a Linux distribution company. If you look at their history that's what their method has been. And, since they are very cozy with Ubuntu now it could be Microsoft Canonical becomes a thing. IBM bought RedHat. Who'd have ever thought that would happen?

Why do people go to linux ? -they want something different -they want more privacy -they want full control over their system -linux is less buggy and more secure. Not everybody using linux is good at development, networking, ... People using Ubuntu for example, to discover their first non-microsoft OS, are not doing so to use specific programs from ubuntu. They are doing so because they seek for an alternative to windows, collecting your data, imposing bloatwares and updates, being full of bugs, being the main target of viruses, not letting you fix or change anything (not even the appearance, becoming worse over time, with windows 10 menu's being so poor in colors and shapes). Maybe microsoft is trying to bring back linux users, but they apparently didn't understand why people use linux instead of windows.

+Diviance thats so true
Diviance (3 days ago)
Now, the less buggy and more secure bit is not _necessarily_ correct. There are undeniably distros that are way buggier than any modern version of Windows... and there are distros that are less secure than a modern version of Windows.

As someone from the Windows camp this comment section is really interesting. I personally side with what Linus Torvalds said: "I still wish we were better at having a standardize desktop that goes across all the distributions…" "It seems to be that Chromebooks and Android are the paths towards the desktop." The end user doesn't want Linux on his desktop. The end user wants something like Android. And now Windows is working on becoming the biggest Linux distro in the world. It's the best of both worlds, the Desktop of Windows with the possibilities of Linux.

Rytis Liaučys (4 days ago)
It is not hard to imagine that Microsofts intention aren't really that evil. Microsoft has not been "that company that makes Windows" for a while now anymore. They've realized there's a lot more money in providing software services. Office went subscribtion, Windows 10 is the last Windows and is now pretty much ran as a SERVICE, they bought the pretty much dead Skype client, from which they earn ridiculous money through providing service for business and enterprise clients. You shouldn't be too surprised if they switch to the Linux kernel overtime, and their main focus becomes selling software such as Microsoft Office and so on. Hell, I wouldn't even be surprised if Windows becomes completely free for personal use, so they have a ground to sell their shit to you. Remember that this aint no Steve Ballmer anymore.

I worked in an IT environment (NOC Engineer) and we had a mixed environment of mostly Windows Desktops and mostly Linux Infrastructure. Like you mentioned, we had lots of issues interfacing with the Linux servers from Windows. We had no problems interfacing from Linux to Windows though. (edited to add) I switched my computers to Linux about 15 years ago. You mentioned the similarities to the different distros, but there are some distros that are very different. While most are Ubuntu derivatives, there is also GNU, ARM and BSD based Linux as well.
Lyle Beilby (4 days ago)
Oh and I beg to differ, there isn't a link between the profitability of Microsoft's telemetry off of Windows 10 and funds going back into Windows development. The least amount of money Microsoft has to but into development is better for them as all they care about is their own greed. THATS A FACT.
Lyle Beilby (4 days ago)
Clearly Windows is making them ALOT of money, if it wasn't the case then they would simply say "Windows 10 will be the absolute last version and there will be no active development, only security updates for the next 10 years" But they haven't so clearly they want Windows.
Diviance (3 days ago)
Well, sometimes a company supports something that they lose money with because it helps something else they are doing. Like Google with YouTube. Which I believe still isn't making any money for Google.
L. D. Barnes (4 days ago)
Lets think about this, one of the largest contributors to the Linux Kernel is Red Hat they are being swallowed up by IBM what that does to Fedora is yet to be seen, if MS gobbles up Canonical which would be smart on their part because of Cononicals expertise in cloud and server computing two of the largest Linux distro's will both have overlords that could be very devastating to the Linux Kernel. The other thought is Google has done a similar thing with their Chromebooks by allowing Linux on them, and maybe this is just a way for MS to keep pace. Going back to my first thought if MS was to take Canonical and Red Hat is taken by IBM who is left to poor money into the Linux Kernel development? OpenSuse? Not really because they have been bought and sold how many times. Look at what happened to Mandrake which I was using in 1999 or 2000 it became Mandriva which is no more. This has happened many times to many distros. I don't trust either Google or MS not to corporatize Linux distros so they become ineffective. What I think you'll see happening is the purist will join with our cousins over in the BSD world and develop BSD into a marketable system and the battle of supremacy will start all over again. What is that sound I hear, Oh it s the Imperial March tune.

There is perhaps another explanation. Perhaps Microsoft sees Linux as the least bad limitation on their monopoly. A number of liberal politicians and pundits are calling for the break up of big tech companies. I have in the last few weeks noticed Robert Reich and Elizabeth Warren calling for the break-up of Microsoft and other giants like Google and Facebook. Microsoft can reasonably argue that they are not an out of control monopoly. You do not have to use Microsoft Office, you can use Open Office and other free programs that work very well. You do not even have to use Windows, you can use Linux. To avoid being broken up GM, Ford, and Chrysler limited their competition so the much smaller American Motors could survive. They charged higher prices and made big profits. Eventually, foreign companies like Volkswagen and Toyota entered the market and the big three American auto companies did not need American Motors to protect them from the anti-trust boys. So Microsoft may see Linux as its American Motors.
Eric Wood (5 days ago)
Ah, Windows.. I have just two uses for it today. I use it for work, because the whole world insists on using Microcrap Office, and I use older versions to play certain older PC games, especially Heroes of Might & Magic II and Warlords: Battlecry 1-3. I wish Windows would just die and leave the desktop to Linux and other open source software, though I wonder whether that would in fact happen, or whether some other commercial offering would end up taking its place instead. Microsoft Linux replacing Windows is an interesting idea, and I could see Satya Nadella doing that. That fits with his known policies and attitude. I'm not sure I'd like to see it, though, because Microsoft has a habit of forcing and coercing consumers onto their platform through leverage. They have been leveraging DirectX and C# and so on to keep people on Windows. I'm afraid that a Microsoft Linux would feature a lot of proprietary technologies like those and would therefore not be altogether friendly to Linux as an open source operating system, because software for Microsoft Linux may not work on Linux proper. But if they want to offer a Linux solution as a transition away from Windows without that sort of thing, that I would certainly welcome. It would also be great if their development efforts would then benefit the open source community as well and not be proprietary.

That is a bad advice. But If you are only Paiting than yeah. But if you make complex work in Professional design with Maxon Cinema 4D, Photoshop, Illustrator, After Effects, InDesign etc. There is simply no alternative on Linux that will make you workflow easy as Adobe. You can take Vector from Illustrator directly paste in Photoshop or In design or After Effects. You can import Cinema 4D files to After Effects no problem. If you change something just change and the rest will update with singe button press. That fast workflow is just impossible on any Linux Alternatives.

I use Linux mainly for deep learning CUDA libraries. If WSL2 allows GPU passthrough to run Linux CUDA code on GPUs, I would be tempted to go back to Win on bare metal. That isn't saying Win is better, just that if you use both, it makes sense to have the better hardware supported OS on bare metal, and anything else virtualized. Hyper V currently is a dog when running Linux, so I would hope they do some tweaking to get it in shape.

You can use suckless software that I use anyway. No more Windows in VM on Linux. Don't need two Windows keys. They will put Windows UI/spyware on the Linux kernel when all PCs run on ARM. This will be easier than porting their kernel for ARM, just like Chrome OS, and Android already do it.

WSL was not created to be a glorified ssh client... You can actually just open command prompt or powershell and do that already. WSL was created so you could run software that you would run in a linux environment, like a web server (node.js, ruby on rails, etc). This was so developers could develop locally on their machine and it would work just like it would when they uploaded it to the production server. Docker is another example of how to do that, and its why they show that in the video you used, because it was one of the most requested features. WSL 1 basically tried to emulate the linux kernel, but thats very difficult and its a moving target. It was just easier to use the actual kernel... which is why WSL 2 does.

I'm not too worried. As long as Arch and Gentoo are around, there will be solid Linux systems for me to run. If Linux somehow implodes, there are the BSDs. If those collapse, maybe something like Redox will fill that void. Who knows, hurd may even eventually launch. There will always be good, free, powerful systems out there, and no company can ever take that away.
Wasteland Seven (6 days ago)
This is my conjecture: I would be willing to bet that they will make Windows cloud based eventually. If their focus is on service based models, then cloud based OS as a paid service makes sense. And I agree we'll see more and more Linux in Windows. Compared to Microsof's bloatware, Linux is light-years more efficient.

All our systems are running Linux, my girlfriend just wants to be able to view photos, videos, listen to some music and browse the web and for that I can install Ubuntu on her machine and since I can easily teach her the basics she needs and she has no experience of any other OS and will come to me to fix any problems anyway, which I actually find easier on Linux anyways, there's no problem. She is learning to use computers on Ubuntu and my son and daughter therefore probably will too, I used to keep a windows system for some basic gaming but I can run the stuff I want on WINE anyway and more Linux versions of the kind of things I like are coming out too, don't need anything M$ now.

What do I think, is that the question? I think you're dead on, but 1 thing. Saying you are on the safe side with Ubuntu. I know no other linux company that shuts down as much as they do. And I remember ubuntu passing on my unity dash results to amazon with shopping lens. Adding to that they filter this information, deciding for me what information I would get to see, and what information I don't get to see. That's censorship to me. I'd rather have microsoft spying on me than amazon, if I really had to choose, because amazon is really good with using this information. It might be water under the bridge, but you asked for it :) Thank you for making awesome videos.

As I've said numerous times, with some agreeing and more bashing me - but here is my thought again... Windows 10 is a rolling release, sounds like Arch doesn't it? Linux users don't generally like Arch from what I see online unless one is deep into Linux to live on the edge. Everything you've stated here lines up with my opinion. Especially when you made your reference to Mac OS 10. Hmm, Mac 10 using Linux Win 10 leaning into Linux, coincidence? I'm looking forward to games running natively in Linux because they won't be written to only use DirectX and dotNet. Or running there people of Linux apps I like on Windows 10.

I love to use both with dual boot. Windows: My MBR is corrupt. Linux: I am here to save the day. User: I want good design with some linux features too. Windows: I have everything. Linux: Sure we are included in everything.

19:00 sweetheart.. it's a 'free(dom) software' idea.. Open source means shit.. when you still are not allowed to do anything with it. I..e I can make up open-source software and still forbid anyone to copy/change it.

I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you're referring to as Linux, is in fact, GNU/Linux, or as I've recently taken to calling it, GNU plus Linux. Linux is not an operating system unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning GNU system made useful by the GNU corelibs, shell utilities and vital system components comprising a full OS as defined by POSIX. Many computer users run a modified version of the GNU system every day, without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, the version of GNU which is widely used today is often called "Linux", and many of its users are not aware that it is basically the GNU system, developed by the GNU Project. There really is a Linux, and these people are using it, but it is just a part of the system they use. Linux is the kernel: the program in the system that allocates the machine's resources to the other programs that you run. The kernel is an essential part of an operating system, but useless by itself; it can only function in the context of a complete operating system. Linux is normally used in combination with the GNU operating system: the whole system is basically GNU with Linux added, or GNU/Linux. All the so-called "Linux" distributions are really distributions of GNU/Linux.

If I start to hate Microsoft, I'll switch to Mac, not Linux. Linux is not good for business, inking, touch, portability and pro stuff.
