With WSL 2, has Windows merged with Linux?


While we all complain about the slow pace Windows 10 has progressed, Microsoft’s energy in building Windows sub-system for Linux is at a totally different level. I feel that Windows 10 is practically merged with Linux as the two operating systems work flawless together now. This has opened the opportunity for many developers, data scientists and AI professionals.

A natural question is where Microsoft is going from here. There are two possibilities. One is the two systems co-exist for the foreseeable future (say 10-20 years). The other is that Linux part will grow stronger and Windows part becomes weaker. Eventually, it becomes Linux that runs Windows apps.

Which is the likely outcome?
