Windows to become emulation layer atop Linux kernel, predicts Eric Raymond https://www.theregister.com/2020/09/28/eric_raymond_linux_beats_windows_prediction/ This guy believes as I do Windows will be a wrapper over Linux. "...Microsoft Windows becomes a Proton-like emulation layer over a Linux kernel, with the layer getting thinner over time as more of the support lands in the mainline kernel sources. The economic motive is that Microsoft sheds an ever-larger fraction of its development costs as less and less has to be done in-house. If you think this is fantasy, think again. The best evidence that it's already the plan is that Microsoft has already ported Edge to run under Linux. There is only one way that makes any sense, and that is as a trial run for freeing the rest of the Windows utility suite from depending on any emulation layer..."
