I was wondering whether that was where Windows was going up thread.

Last month Eric Raymond (an open source 'guru' - he wrote The Cathedral and the Bazaar) claimed in a widely-shared piece that Microsoft was "Switching To a Linux Kernel That Emulates Windows". I didn't see any articles that refuted that. Until the other day, when a Ubuntu guy disagreed. (But if not, why 'WSL'?)

Whichever - Windows seems to be moving to a Linux-style package manager with the release of 'winget', which is rip-off of the aptget package manager used in several Linux systems. So maybe restarting during system updates will one day become a bad memory for Windows users.
