wait what, you can download Linux distros in Windows 10's store, for use by the Linux personality?

@calvin I use Ubuntu, it's legit. Cleaner than Cygwin and Babun, more convenient than VirtualBox.

@annika I was aware of Ubuntu for GNU/NT (or as I have taken to calling it, GNU+NT) but not shit like SLES on the MS Store

@calvin The store claims Fedora should be there, but I don't see it.

@calvin reminder for me to test musl+busybox via openwrt or alpine on WSL

@calvin it's neat, each distro installed functions as a separate container with its own fs/pid/hostname/uptime namespace
and you can register your own "distros"
