All these developers going nuts about Windows getting the Linux kernel built in, when Linux has had the Linux kernel built in this whole time...

🤷‍♂️

@russsaidwords Are developers going mad for it? Most I know use Linux or Mac anyway 🤷‍♂️

@mikebabb Ha, nah, I don't have my finger on the pulse of all developers. However, the semi-technical press is making a hubbub about it, so my expression was generally a reaction to their seeming overreaction.

@russsaidwords Yeah, they got pretty excited about the first iteration of "Ubuntu running in Windows" as well. I didn't get it then, and I don't get it now. If you want Linux, run Linux!

@mikebabb Their stated idea was to enable web devs to be able to do their work with the High Quality A+ Enterprise UI and manageability of Windows

@mikebabb Basically the target audience is "well I *would* like to use OSX and it'd make my work way easier, but I already know Windows, so maybe...."

When I worked at $OUTSOURCING_COMPANY I messed around with it for a little while, but it was even more deficient than msys/cygwin so I just used that.
