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!

    What does the new kernel shim give me

    Choice ?

    Choice is good, right ? Isn't that what you geeks keep repeating day in and day out ?

    I CHOOSE NOT to run Windows. (Except at work, where someone else is responsible for maintaining it.)

    I get constant rejection even though the compiler is supposed to accept constants.
