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!

Previously: Windows 10 Will Soon Ship with a Full, Open Source, GPLed Linux Kernel

    The real trick is learning time. I have a half-dozen rather straightforward problem statements to implement, and they're all obvious (to me) how to implement in Qt/C++, but constitute a pretty steep learning curve for me in Pillow/NumPy/OpenCV/what-have-you. Convert RGB to HSV or HSL, run statistics on the color channel values at each pixel location (things like mean, median, mode), make a transform which maps one set of images to have an identical color channel histograms as another set of images at each pixel location, copy-paste arbitrary ellipses from one image into another with alpha-blend margins, etc. etc. When the library has a function pre-built (like RGB to HSL transform) then, brilliant, say the magic words and it just happens.

    My greatest frustration is when a library doesn't do something, because then the documentation tends to be silent on that point (hard to confirm a negative....), and when a library/language can't be made to do something in a practical manner, the documentation tends to be doubly silent on that point.
