Ubuntu Linux is now available in the Windows 10 "Anniversary" update as a component of Windows. It appears that Microsoft is embracing their biggest enemy!

It can't run GUI applications, and is really only intended for developers, but it is interesting that Microsoft is embracing its biggest enemies and open source development. Seems like they are trying to commit suicide.
