Windows 10 is shipping a Linux kernel. You can run many flavors of Linux, side by side, on Windows with deep compatibility and deep integration with Windows. New open source projects like a GPU-accelerated Windows Terminal and the popular VS Code editor are being developed in the open with lots of community involvement.
Scott Hanselman, Kayla Cinnamon, and Yosef Durr explain how and why open source is the new normal for Microsoft, showcase a ton of demos, and answer questions—including “What’s the catch?”
This session is sponsored by Microsoft.
