I’m running my laptop on Windows, which may sound weird, but Linux is unfortunately not an option when you exchange Microsoft Word documents, manage your e-mails and calendar with Outlook and present with Powerpoint using dual screen (I want to share on the beamer only the slides or demo screen, not my whole desktop). However, I have 3 ways to enjoy GNU/Linux: Cygwin to operate on my laptop, VirtualBox to run Linux hosts, and Cloud services when free trials are available.
Now that Windows 10 has a Linux subsystem, I’ll try it to see if I still need Cygwin.
In a summary, I’ll still use Cygwin, but may prefer this Linux subsystem to run SQLcl, the SQL Developer command line, from my laptop.
I wrote a few months ago about having a play with Windows 10 (here).
I’m visiting family today, catching up on all the Windows desktop (and mobile phone) support that I missed while I was away.
I purposely postponed the Windows 10 update on the desktops before I went away, but now I’m back I did the first of them.
The update itself was fine, but it did take a long time. Nothing really to write home about.
