Microsoft launches Windows 10 operating system update that brings the Linux kernel officially


Microsoft has made the May 2020 Update for its Windows 10 operating system officially available for download and update. The spotlight of the new update is the inclusion of the Linux kernel with a copy committed to working with Windows.

Now Windows 10 includes a subsystem based on the Linux kernel, and this integration between Linux and Windows 10 will add a meaningful improvement in the performance of the leading system Windows 10.

Microsoft promises to send updates to the Linux kernel within the subsystem via the steady Windows Update Center, as it is open source developers can create their own kernel, as well as contribute to the development of the existing kernel.

Currently, the subsystem does not support Linux graphical interface applications, nor does it support the graphics card, but it is a feature that is coming in later versions of Windows.

One of the additional matters in this version is the fantastic improvements in Cortana, where you can remove it from the taskbar, as well as choose between typing and voice in giving commands, and there are improvements in the way of dialogue.

Microsoft has also added Quick Search to receive the latest updates regarding weather, news, movies and an event on this day.

This update has been available for beta users since last month, and is now available for download and installation directly from the Windows Update Center under Settings – Security and Protection.
