Most windows installs don't have WSL installed; currently it's only doable via power shell. Meaning that your average luser can't accidentally install it futzing around in settings. As a multi-gig install I don't see it becoming a standard part anytime soon. Roll eyes | :rolleyes:

And because Chromebooks version of linux is locked down and only able to run Chrome and Android apps; not any of the normal linux software you'd get via apt/etc IMO it's really not much closer to a real linux desktop than your phone is if you plug a keyboard, mouse, and external monitor into its USB port via a hub.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?

Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.
