    Built-in port of OpenSSH is probably the main reason why Microsoft donated to The OpenBSD Foundation in 2017 and 2016. Microsoft finally changed its politics about FOSS software. For almost two decades Microsoft denied at all times, by its own policy, that FOSS software can be good, useful software. It's good that this finally changed.

    Windows 10 Fall Creators Update includes (optional) OpenSSH Client and Server

    It seems OpenSSH client is installed in Windows 10 SCU (1803) by default. OpenSSH server is not.

    Does it have better support for (different kind of) SSH keys now?
