No need to compile windows binaries anymore!

Ok, you'll need w11, but still, at least for me, it will save time and effort.
No need anymore to program cross-platform and to maintain different build chains.
I hope w11 quickly replaces w10.

Run Linux GUI apps on the Windows Subsystem for Linux:

Is it time to echo the EEE mantra? :D

Seriously though, this is good news for those that are stuck on the corporate jobs and can't use Linux.

langwadt:
you have been able to do it for quite some time one win10, just not as integrated so you needed to install an xserver, I've used x410

rsjsouza:
TBH, nothing that a Virtual Machine hasn't solved in more than a decade, which I tend to prefer so I can keep various development environments contained with their tool versions and such - I have to keep support for 10+ year old toolchains and SDKs.

And Windows 10 had some level of integration that worked moderately well.

I personally am not looking forward for Windows 11. It will be another hodgepodge of M$ bullet dodging.

SiliconWizard:
Uh yeah?
Except that if you actually target Windows, users will want native binaries. Usually. Except maybe for very niche products for which they probably won't care.
Oh and binary-compatibility for Linux binaries across different Linux distros can already be a headache, so not talking about WSL... if you think that'll be as painless as that.
