It occurs to me that if the platform you’re using for your meeting is more interesting to attendees than the content of the meeting, you’re doing something wrong.
Specifically, Microsoft has decided to remove the Linux kernel from the Windows OS image with WSL2. Instead, the company will deliver it to users’ machines using Windows Update. Users will be able to manually check for new kernel updates by clicking the “Check for Updates” button or by waiting for Windows to do this automatically.
“Our end goal is for this change to be seamless, where your Linux kernel is kept up to date without you needing to think about it. By default this will be handled entirely by Windows, just like regular updates on your machine,” said Microsoft Program Manager Craig Loewen in a blog post today outlining the coming change.

This is how the NY Times answered the “should reporters learn to code” question. Turns out a little tech fluency goes a long way. There’s something here to emulate in legal education and the practice of law.

Hey, what good’s Ubuntu 18.04 for web dev without Apache, PHP, and MySQL? Getting the full LAMP stack up and running in WSL is a breeze and then you can get some work done. BTW, don’t forget Git.
There are some good pointers and excellent tips in Web Development and Advanced Techniques with Linux on Windows (WSL) that are useful if you’re using WSL as part of your dev toolkit. Getting the same envs, including PATH, running across both systems is handy. It’s cool to be able to develop in Windows and test in Ubuntu without mucking about with VMs or ssh or anything.
