    Triple Boot Windows 10 IP Build 17046/Windows Server 2016/Debian Sid

    Well I could have figured that. Windows Server 2016 is a different story. I guess anybody that has a dual boot system is barred?

    No.. but they typically don't call Windows 10 a "toy" OS,

    I was wondering the same. Someone using the real mother of all toy operating systems Ubuntu, a Linux distro for those who can't do real Linux but need Linux to be able to brag "I use Linux, Windows sux!", a Ubuntu user calling Windows a toy OS!

    Where can I send the bills? For laundry and replacement keyboard. That made me laugh so hard I spilled whisky all over my shirt and trousers and keyboard.

    Actually I was talking about the Ubuntu Subsystem for Windows 10. I myself use openSUSE Leap. If that is a toy OS then I guess I like playing with toys. Only if you purchase some toys for Windows are you going to have something you can really work with (that includes Office of course)

    Triple Boot Windows 10 IP Build 17046/Windows Server 2016/Debian Sid

    I figured out (using Google!) how to enable networking using the Ubuntu Bash Subsystem and am working on installing GUI programs - not there yet but there are plenty of CLI programs. Need to disable the Avast Firewall while I'm working with it and renable the Windows Firewall. I'll work on Avast to add an exception for bash sometime. So - is there a thread here on the Linux Subsystem?

    Isn't it better to consider OS as part of computer (device) same as hardware ? One doesn't work without other and only whole thing determines what could be done with it and which (and how many) programs you can run on it.

    Gee in my absence I may as well have called for my legal rep or something? Since any OS can be run on a VM you wouldn't be so likely to label any OS an intrical portion of any system but an optional component as far as which OS that will be.

    Now as far as any Insider build the term "Developer" should be what would be ringing the bell far more then "Toy OS" as this thread has strayed off to. What MS is now looking at as well as having realized the need for was how to make 10 work with a large increasing variety of non MS OSed devices. Ubuntu compatibility as well as the UNIX based hand held devicess connected directly or remotely by Bluetooth or other is one reason for seeing the ubuntu form of Bash console option.

    Besides the multi hardware platform 10 is now being looked at as a "want to be" Cross OS platform solution as you can see from look at the general market place for all those other Fox OS, Android, and other tablet to smart phone items. And then you look at businesses that see Linux servers but still run with Windows desktop machines and how to make that work. There's a bit more behind the scenes to be looking at.

    As for Windows Server 2016 have that running on a VM still and about to see the 295 Education build go on another for a good look over of that edition. I could easily snag the 295 Enterprise Insider as well but wouldn't be running that on the main while i would more likely compare the Education to old 7 Ultimate edition to see where the comparison leads off from there.

    As for when each new build arrives with the exception of wanting to see what changes have been made on a larger not minor scale if any besides bug fixes I would tend to rather keep a working build on longer following the multi build carried on sound problem that came up with the 295 and is now resolved in the 328 and 332 builds. Everything had been cherry picked 100% working order on the 291 build previously seen.

    You still need an OS to use VM, don't you ?

    You need an ISO for an OS. That isn't hardware but a software file! And most of the hardware drivers will be useless since you will end up with very limited access to physical hardwares but instead share resources with the host OS.
