OK, thanks for RTFA because I didn't, but let's now get at how this deserves a fine of $48 million? Especially if we're talking about the "top 3 percent," which could easily be interpreted as people who are abusing the service?
Seriously? This is a joke... I mean, who thought sending a mission to Mars would be this hard?
They're still just bonehead idiots who ruin shows by getting into fights. The fact that they look for guys with swastika tattoos to fight first doesn't make much difference.
What in fact are they "testing" where it comes to the different frequency bands? Aren't the properties of electromagnetic waves pretty well understood by now? Shouldn't they be able to predict which frequency bands will work?
Functionally, however, I don't see a great deal of difference between this and Cygwin as in both cases one ends up with a lot of the same programs running atop Microsoft Windows.
For some value of "functionally," perhaps not -- at least not for now. But in future, maybe, if you wanted to test against some Linux software and you needed to be sure you're using the actual binary that ships with an actual, commercial distro, you could potentially do that with Windows Subsystem for Linux (but you could never do it with Cygwin).
When all else fails, read the instructions.
