Getting massive headlines from the mainstream "tech press" about how they're bringing Linux GUI apps to #Windows, as if that somehow served anyone else but #Microsoft trying to compel developers not to leave their platform.
Fortunately, WSL2 is still a massive pile of crap, so good luck with that.
Then there's the announcement of "bringing DX12 to #Linux", whereas in reality it's only for WSL2, not Linux in general and it's almost entirely closed-source.
Basically, it just proxies calls to DX12 from WSL2 to the underlying Windows host, it's not some grand port.
P.S. Let's pause for a second around why they call it "Windows Subsystem for Linux", as if it's something they were doing for Linux users, whereas in reality it's actually a Linux Subsystem for #Windows. Nice newspeak there
@MatejLach I don't think the hostilities will be quite back to normal. Microsoft has pivoted to the cloud afterall, where they don't fear us as much.
