Microsoft allows you to download Linux distributions from the Windows Store



A brilliant opening from Microsoft on the Linux operating system, as the company announced the availability of three of the most famed and most important Linux distributions through the Windows Store to be downloaded as any normal program.

Microsoft will provide Ubuntu, Fedora and SUSE Linux distributions for download via the Windows Store, making it easier to run Linux applications and programs on Windows 10 computers.

The Linux system installation process will be run according to the chosen distribution within a virtual work environment next to the Windows system, and it will provide the same Linux command line tools as whether you installed it completely on the device as was the case before.

This openness from Microsoft on Linux exceeds what it provided with the launch of the Anniversary Update, which if the Bash command line for Ubuntu directly within Windows with support for the same commands. But it is not surprising that Microsoft officially joined the Linux association last November.
