Microsoft's Windows Subsystem for Linux is coming to all Windows 10 users (archive):
You won't have to be a tester to try Windows 10's new, built-in Linux kernel in the near future. Microsoft has confirmed that Windows Subsystem for Linux 2 will be widely available when Windows 10 version 2004 arrives. You'll have to install it manually for a "few months" until an update adds automatic installs and updates, but that's a small price to pay if you want Linux and Windows to coexist in peace and harmony. It'll be easier to set up, at least -- the kernel will now be delivered through Windows Update instead of forcing you to install an entire Windows image.
Embrace, Extend... Excite!

Everyone knows windows is a deadend, but nobody steps up because windows market, the desktop market is shrinking.
I personally think "desktop" market still have much potential, but I'm no Billy boy.
It's interesting to see how MS would linger on. IBM, the fucking dino, somehow managed to remain a major tech player. Would MS pull the same?
