Linux On Windows Server: Linux Admin Scripts Will Now Run On Windows

Last week, at its developer conference Build 2017, Microsoft announced that it’s bringing Windows Subsystem for Linux to Windows Server. Apart from this, Windows Server will also be joining Windows Insider program. The other new features of Windows Server will be aligned with the next release of Windows 10.

I am pleased to share that we are also bringing the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL), commonly known as Bash on Windows, to Windows Server. This unique combination allows developer and application administrators to use the same scripts, tools, procedures and container images they have been using for Linux containers on their Windows Server container host. These containers use our Hyper-V isolation technology combined with your choice of Linux kernel to host the workload while the management scripts and tools on the host use WSL.

Galago Pro comes with one USB-C with Thunderbolt, Ethernet, HDMI, SD Card slot and DisplayPort.

It also has a slot for a nano SIM card to get cellular connectivity while on the move. But I have been told the corresponding motherboard hardware bits are not installed.
