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 well, some people actually need to run windows due to reasons and would like to have the linux kernel as well. For example, with that you can run both VS 2017 and Linux based build pipelines and ship cross platform software.

@soapdog There are no good reasons for using bad software: only business reasons.

@russsaidwords you know as well as I that good and bad is not an absolute value. There are good things on windows, for example, its retrocompatibility with old software is great. Try picking a binary for some industrial stuff from 20 years ago and running. It still works.

@soapdog I imagine it's like turning on the heaters in your house for the first time in the cold season, burning off all of that accumulated dust. πŸ˜‰

I'm just playing, by the way.
