Linux in the Windows Store
« on: May 14, 2017, 07:37:22 pm »
I have to says when I was reading Gadgets360,( ) I was pleased to see that Microsoft has allowed Ubuntu into the Windows Store, and at a furture date Fedora and SUSE will be in the store, OK I know  for  visualized environment, but then why is Microsoft allowing Linux Distros, OK so iTunes is also going to be there but why are they doing this for Linux. Can’t help but feel something just no right here.

AFAIK it's all about Microsoft Azure running Linux VM's, so system admins can administer Linux VM's from within Windows (Powershell).
