Microsoft: Ubuntu Fedora and Suse via Windows Store…


Microsoft surprised everyone today when it announced at Build 2017 that Apple is bringing iTunes to the Windows Store. It was a surprise but not like the one that followed immediately after…

Ubuntu will also be available through the Windows Store, while Fedora and Suse come to Windows Subsystem for Linux.

Basically, Linux distribution traffic through Windows Store will allow users to install them as applications on Windows 10 devices, meaning that they can run Windows and Linux applications together without having to have two dual-boot systems .

"Windows 10 is the first system to allow you to do this," Microsoft told Build at a developer conference today.

This functionality will be available with the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update update, but it will be available Ubuntu is already available in the Windows Store while it is Suse and the Fedora will be released later. The update for WSL (Windows Subsystem for Linux) will also be released later.

Microsoft once again reiterated that it loves Linux, leaving behind all the criticisms that the former CEO has said about the world of open source. Steve Ballmer, the former chief executive of Microsoft, once called Linux cancer, but with today's announcement, it is now obvious that the Redmond company is now openly supporting Linux and open source (?!).

"Windows 10 will be the most productive user interface ever," Microsoft said.

As you can see on the screenshot, the Ubuntu Windows Store entry resembles any other application available in the Store and of course it is available to download and install it for free.
