Devs can now run Linux on Windows 10

Great news for developers -- an open source tool that allows developers and programmers to run Linux on Windows 10 has been released by Microsoft!

You know it's amazing when good things work together, and this is exactly that! With this tool, Linux distribution maintainers can bring their distros to the Windows Store to run on Windows 10's Windows Subsystem for Linux. So if you want to create custom Linux distributions to run on WSL, this will definitely help you out!

This news isn't only for software's sake; according to Charles King, principal analyst at Pund-IT, WSL should help Microsoft itself retain developers and related communities' interest and enthusiasm.
