I’m conflicted on how I feel about this.
On one hand, I’m happy to see the continued support Windows is putting into WSL. Security features like this surely indicate that it’s going to remain part of the toolbox for Windows developers for years to come.
On the other hand, I’m a little disappointed that my days of using WSL to get around all those pesky coproorate rules will soon be over. Back when I was forced to use a Windows machine, I always liked logging in to wsl because I could just use it like a linux machine, and not the corporate asset that the computer was.
Unrelated: Does anyone have experience running the defender program on a linux machine? I’m considering trying it out for no reason other than morbid curiosity. The thought of having a Microsoft program acting as the gatekeeper on one of my linux boxes is kind of funny to me.
