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!

Why would Microsoft do that? Graphically, the Windows desktop services are much better than Linux'. It's the command line where Microsoft is lacking.
m$ is ALWAYS out for money. the first and formost consideration is always to make more money.this, ofc, doesn't always jive with what the user deserves.m$ "putting in" linux isn't about anything but tying a thin thread at their previously "star windows users" like a clingy gf or bf because they accidentally installed linux, liked it and are jumping ship. ofc m$ will never learn: money ruleZ the world in their book ... let go already!
