Microsoft Surprises Linux Users

Well in the past, if someone tells me Microsoft officially supports running a linux under Windows... well :)


Microsoft already changed their mind and Im like it!
Started with *Windows 10*, Microsoft Dropped Windows 8 "thing" very soon and bring on Windows 10. Not a question Windows 8 was a faulire. Thats All.

This article a bit outdated, but as I everyday talk people who are getting surprises hearing about these things.
As *nix sysadmin, When to use Microsoft Windows? When not?

So here we go .. Visual Studio Code, WIndows 10 with Linux Subshell, GIT?

My Friend just Could not believe that I can run Debian from Windows 10.
But I could not believe that he not knew the secret.
lead WSL. so this is how this thing called, you can enable WSL from powershell by entering the line below:
Enable-WindowsOptionalFeature -Online -FeatureName Microsoft-Windows-Subsystem-Linux

Then you can simply Install a distros from Windows Store for free Of Corse..

Pros: - Very powerfull for sysadmins/developers/devops when they are linux oriented, but stucked on Windows. - Say goodbye to DUAL-BOOT - Very effective for cross-platform compilation, because in subshell you can build for windows (mingw), and also you can run .exe files in linux (LOL) Cons: - Some glitches can occurs on terminal - This is a subshell, so hardware accesses or internal core functions maybe not working or different / like USB devices.

A Cross-Platform MS Product / FREE which definitely beats most of editors: Microsoft Studio Code
Yes they made something success, I hope that they will give up with Internet Explorer, Edge things and focusing these products which actually a great success.
Microsoft Visual Code is a lightweight, pluginable, developer friend rich-featured editor.
Support many languages as C/C++/PHP/ASP.

External Modules such as Platform-IO makes this simple editor as powerfull IDE & Compiler & Toolchain for IoT embedded stuffs like arduino.
