Bash launches on Windows!
Finally: Windows 10 will ship with an embedded Linux translation layer - like Wine in reverse.
On top of that, a complete Ubuntu distro - so that you can now run bash natively. And apt. And vim. And emacs. And git.
Of course you can improve Windows by emulating a better operating system! Have you been able to do this all along? HAVE YOU?
Like, if you went into a Subway and they provided a better sandwich experience by also having a miniature Quiznos RIGHT THERE IN THE BUILDING.

We briefly outlined plans to move to Welsh, but cancelled them after discovering that the Welsh language lacks any grammar, syntax, or morphology and Welsh people have only been pretending to understand one another all these years.

| Third frame: (He waves at his presentation title) Processes & Pipes: They've been in Unix for like 40 goddamn years.
You'd be surprised at how many of our solutions were already solved, 10 years before I was born.

This is my favourite dumb technology joke.
In recent news, the International Space Station crew has switched from Windows to Linux.
ISS: Mission Control, we seem to be careening towards Jupiter. |
Mission Control: Were you fiddling with xorg.conf again?
