As mentioned in the WSLg ‘Foundation Post’ for the Windows Subsystem for Linux GUI series page, I “have read some great articles by the Microsoft team ‘n people” involved in this massive project, and wanted to share my favorite one at this point.
How much of a novice am I on the topics of such ‘Thangs as Windows Subsystem for Linux, Windows Subsystem for Linux GUI, and/or what a “SQL Server on Linux” is? I don’t even know what a SQL Server is! I didn’t even understand Microsoft’s Program Manager Tara Raj’s “April Fools Day joke” meaning about SQL Server on Linux!?!
Be sure to read the entire article – When We Brought Linux to Windows. I suspect Microsoft’s Program Manager Tara Raj definitely knows what a SQL Server on Linux is – heck, she can even tell jokes about it!?! 😉
More to come on my ‘novice-experience’ with Windows Subsystem for Linux GUI (WSLg). Linux and Open Source Developers must love where this Microsoft project is ‘n is headed!
The latest Windows 10 Insider build (21354.1) introduced support for Windows Subsystem for Linux GUI Apps (WSLg). Microsoft Windows can now run Linux desktop apps natively. Let that sink in for a bit.
This isn’t one of those Virtual box ‘Thingies or a Hyper-V virtual machine…well, at least it doesn’t look like any one I ever used. 😉 This is more about Linux ‘n Free Software ‘n Open Source GUI Apps running in Windows 10!?
LINUX IS LIKE A BOX OF CHOCOLATES – you never know what you’re gonna get!
