The two day event will feature presentations by the Microsoft team behind the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) feature; the creators of the ‘Pengwin‘ WSL distributions; and (more pertinent to our tastes, perhaps) the Ubuntu on WSL team at Canonical.
The free-but-small WSLConf is scheduled for March of next year, so WSL 2 will probably be generally available. Much easier than staying caught up with the Fast Ring.
I may have to check this out.

There's been way too much “it just works (more or less)” in my desktop life lately, so I started using the awesomewm tiling window manager.
Disappointingly, it works just fine.

Been impatiently waiting for the general release of WSL 2 – the Windows Subsystem for Linux. What's interesting about WSL 2?
WSL 2 delivers a much faster file system performance and full system call compatibility, which lets you run more applications like Docker!
Looks like it's scheduled to go out in the first half of 2020. So I can either wait several months or switch my rarely-used Windows partition to the Insider Ring.

I decided to install the Sun JDK on my new Fedora install today. Tried downloading the JDK/NetBeans self-installing bundle. It didn't work. I got an error in xcb_xlib:xcb_xlib_unlock - something about a failed assertion. While running the installer. Drat.
