What do you think about windows will have Linux kernel? 🤔

    Will it tho? I heard it will have better linux kernel integration for Windows Subsystem for Linux... it'll keep chugging along with the same old WindowsNT kernel.

    Dropping a Jaguar engine into a BMW doesn't turn it into a real Jag.

    @redman shouldn't that be the other way 'round? Jag is owned by Ford after all 💁🏻‍♂️

    @M1sf3t Not anymore ... Tata bought Jaguar several years ago

    @redman god if only a year sooner maybe I wouldn't be forever working on my buddies range. Then again I probably still wouldn't be in business 🤔

    Very unlikely that it will actually have a second kernel - kernel's don't really parallelize well and there's little point in doing that. It's basically a translation layer similar to WINE. And it's already been there for some time.

    It'd make WSL waay nicer and opens the door to much better integration of Linux software into the Windows system. I think it'd be pretty nice if we could get close to Linux performance of Linux applications from within Windows, it's a best of both worlds scenario for people like me who use both platforms regularly.

    It's actually great for me. As a C# developer who primarily uses Windows, it would be much more easier to join the modern world of containers and other stuff instead of trying to configure and force things in Windows

    1) I don't think that will be a thing
    2) They're supposed to fix their goddamn stupid os, not the kernel.

    @reiniellematt oh my God, this! If anything, then Docker is an absolute bi** to work with on Windows! It's honestly easier to get a dedicated linux machine (physical or virtuallized) and just run everything Docker related on that, than to put up with the infinite amount of things fucking up on Windows.
