Microsoft and Canonical partner to bring Ubuntu to Windows 10
As per sources at Canonical, Ubuntu Linux’s guardian organization, and Microsoft, you’ll soon have the capacity to run Ubuntu on Windows 10. This will be more than simply running the Bash shell on Windows 10. All things considered, because of projects, for example, Cygwin or MSYS utilities, in-your-face Unix clients have for quite some time possessed the capacity to run the prominent Bash command line interface (CLI) on Windows.
With this new expansion, Ubuntu clients will have the capacity to run Ubuntu at the same time with Windows. This won’t be in a virtual machine, however as an incorporated a portion of Windows 10.
The subtle elements won’t be uncovered until tomorrow’s morning keynote discourse at Microsoft Build. It is trusted that Ubuntu will keep running on top of Windows 10’s as of late and discreetly presented Linux subsystems in another Windows 10 Redstone fabricate.
All things considered, Canonical and Microsoft have been taking a shot at conveying holders to Windows since the previous summer. They’ve been doing this utilizing LXD. This is an open-source hypervisor composed particularly for use with compartments rather than virtual machines (VMs). The products of that venture will probably appear in Azure than Windows 10.
It additionally appears to be far-fetched that Ubuntu will be carrying its Unity interface with it. Rather the attention will be on Bash and other CLI devices, for example, make, ogle and grep.
Might you be able to run a Linux desktop, for example, Unity, GNOME, or KDE on it? Most likely, yet that is not the motivation behind this organization.
