This is just an opinion, not the fact.
Surely, Linux and UNIX have a lot of powerful features, especially developer oriented. That is why Windows has to adopt them. Because they really solves a lot of problems, such as bash and other commands like grep, find, and vi. Cloud computing is emerging, command-line is much more efficient than GUI. Text file for collaborative development is much more efficient (using git) than working on binary file, as you cannot diff and patch.
Since Windows now supports Linux subsystem, in my opinion, Windows may come out Windows – Linux Edition that
- uses the UNIX filesystem hierarchy standard
- supports commercial device drivers (like printers)
- supports Linux container virtualisation
- can run Windows applications natively (without WINE)
- run X window customised with Windows theme
- uses its own package manager with package repository
- is cheaper price
I believe, there will be a group of users interested in it!
