So hairy you want MS html, MS Css, things that only work on win32, etc?
Bill Gates is what caused MS to focus on being proprietary and monopolistic! He was the one who broke ASCII so you needed dos2unix and unix2dos on purpose to make porting hard. He made Sco Xenix broken so it would be harder to port apps to solaris and irix.
You may hate the new CEO but he is open sourcing things, supporting Freebsd and Linux to azure, porting PowerShell to Linux and Ubuntu to Windows, creating ms code editor to Linux and Mac OSx, and Android and mono development to visual studio 2015.
Bill Gates would reverse this.
Personally MS is making much better applications. Windows is the only issue based on 2 things which a QA team and less spyware can fix. Keep in mind your phone and Browser do the same things. If MS needs to fund this they should sell different versions
Fanboy cheerleaders coming up
Freebsd 10.3 worked fine from your beloved OS before upgrading.
Never ever upgrade is a common SOP of IT since things always break. Sorry but just because you like BSD doesn't mean it's magical and laws of complexity do not apply.
Have any proof?
People not successful always quote this and blame others and not themselves for not being wealthy.
But fact is the so called inside doesn't care. They got theirs and that's all that matters. Go create a business or work like they do for the same results.
Yeah because of IE 6 - 8.
So yes if the site works don't break it! But, that doesn't mean it's used for new projects for modern browsers and mobile apps. Typescript and angular are what the cool kids are using these days
And he's trying to cause election day violence.
I'm not saying to go violent, but we have to watch, folks, because our democracy is being stolen by the media, by the government, by a bunch of lying whores too ugly to grope, by SNL, and by illegal aliens who get airlifted from Mexico to the inner cities so they can vote five times for Crooked Hillary! It's all rigged, the system is totally rigged, folks, totally rigged, and you know it's true because if Trump loses, believe me, everything is rigged, I can tell you that much.
I did an apt-get install Apache2 and it installed
Now I didn't check to see if it worked as a have separate VM's of turnkey Linux appliances for those. MS wanted to include this because they are worried of becoming irrelevant to young millennials who make web pages and mobile apps so things like Apache was one of the goals of making WSL in the first place.
It doesn't seem like much of a surprise that starting a fight between POSIX and NT ACLs is going to end badly; but this 'review' fails pretty dramatically at answering the question of how much of a problem this is.
If you can't, in practice, let the Linux side touch the Windows side, or vice versa, lest ugly and inscrutable things happen, then you might as well just run a VM. If you can actually do a variety of interesting things across systems, so long as you avoid a few edge cases, that is potentially more useful.
Mod parent up.
I was thinking something similiar and not having CHMOD change an attribute is a feature.
NTFS and the NT kernel do not understand Unix ACLs and permissions. If you Chmod something you can break it as the NTFS.SYS driver will assume the data is corrupt.
While I think the WSL is a fun hack it is not practical as both systems were never designed to work with each other. Modern Windows is more akin to VMS than to Unix even if they do share some same features the implementations are different
MS has spent over two decades ignoring the CLI shell; they don't care about it and don't understand it, they only understand GUI. Powershell is proof of that, only people who have disdain for CLI would produce that absurdly verbose monstrosity.
I am not a shill or troll for MS by a longshot but have you actually used Powershell?
There are somethings I dare say gulp I like about powershell over Bash. True MS made the mistake in the NT days of assuming the system admin would be sitting in front of the server in the MDF unlike a Novel Netware or Unix box which assumes you use a tty or console from elsewhere.
From looking at Server 2016 with the whole Nano Server edition I would say it is IMPOSSIBLE to admin such VM's without powershell. Now the direction is the other way.
My criticism of Cygwin here which is unpopular is the same of Bash on Windows (not on Unix though) in that Bash and Unix commands assume everything is a file. In Windows everything is an object. Powershell assumes everything is an object by default.
Is it production ready?
Let's say I get apache to work. Excellent. Now I have some scripts from Bob my coworker uses and some custom XML APIs for PHP to get my web app up. Will they work? Probably not.
Any i5 with 8 to 16 gigs of ram with an SSD can do a VM lightning fast. Specially a type 1 like Hyper-V or KVM/qemu. Most developers and even hipsters posses such specs easily and Hyper-V and virtual box are there and work.
Use a VM or better yet an Amazon e3 vm to do your development work with no headaches
Can you apt-get install to run any binary? I hate cygwin with a passion.
These days I do virtual machines. Cygwin provides no value if you need to run modern apps bugfree. Same with Linux guys who do wine. If you need to run Windows than do it in a vm
That's a little extreme.
Cygwin is very outdated and uses translated calls from POSIX to win32 with all the bugs and glory on both platforms combined.
Last I checked you couldn't run major products. Also what good is it? Everything in Windows is an object, not a text file. You cannot cat your event viewer files nor can you use awk, sed, and grep for WMI on your PC. MS is native and more apps are supported.
This is 2016. If any geek is stuck on Windows or Linux and need an app on another platform you run a virtual machine. Let Linux be Linux and Windows be Windows. Win 10 has Hyper-V and virtual box and qemu is free on Linux.
Or rather don't play by the rules unless you're part of the big good old boys club. Peasants need not apply here are your separate rules
The Russians didn't leak it then because they prefer a Trump administration than a Sanders one.
There goal is to weaken the US and have it pull out of NATO to a guy who will fold if you stroke his ego
Alexander Graham Bell is alive and well in New York, and still waiting for a dial tone.
