Microsoft is kicking off its BUILD 2016 developer conference on March 30. This annual event is known to bring some exciting news for Microsoft fans each year. At this year’s event, Microsoft is expected to show off its newly-found Linux love in a big manner.
According to a new report from ZDNet, Microsoft is likely to announce a partnership between Canonical and Microsoft that would aim to bring Ubuntu on Windows 10.
This functionality won’t be limited to running Bash shell on Windows 10. With this development, users will be able to run Ubuntu simultaneously with Windows operating system. This will be making Ubuntu an integrated part of Windows 10, not just some virtual machine.
At the moment, details are not revealed regarding this arrangement. It’s expected that Ubuntu will run on top of a foundation of native Windows libraries. It should be noted that Microsoft quietly introduced Linux subsystem in a new Windows 10 Redstone build.
