Das Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) gibt es seit 2016 in Windows 10. War 2013 also ziemlich zutreffend:
For example, you may have a mixed environment, and in spite of the shiny new Windows software, you still need some Unix apps. By the way, don’t be too quick to pat yourself on the shoulder for replacing that clunking old Unix software. My bet is that in five to ten years you’ll be moving back to a Unix or Linux based app: unless Microsoft finds some legal shenanigan to kill Linux, I think that’s almost inevitable.
