Default Run Ubuntu (not Linux) in Windows 10

That's directly in Windows 10.

My mistake. You will be able to run Ubuntu, not Linux. I fixed the thread topic to reflect this.

Thanks for the update! I read the comments this time which were interesting. To me, knowing squat really about Ubuntu and Linux, having to put up with Win10 would make it a no-go...'-}}

Ubuntu is a Linux variant, no?

And now: Linux that updates itself whether you like it or not? Torvalds isn't going to like this, not one bit.

Wikipedia traces its lineage to Debian and thence to Linux:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ubuntu...ting_system%29

I'm not my grandfather, but could be considered a genetic variant ;-)

But I know a little less than squat about it.

Apparently within those circles, there is one guy who vociferously insists that Ubuntu is not Linux (variant or no)...ahhh...found it...the guy is Mark Shuttleworth--ref'd in the comments--and here's a take from one of the commenters ("ckmb"):

"Mark Shuttleworth has for years been yelling that “...Ubuntu is not Linux...”; and for years has been trying to attach SOME form of credibility to Ubuntu via a relationship with Microsoft...and now he’s got what he wants. Kinda. Re-read the title: 

'Ubuntu (not Linux) on Windows: How it works

Ubuntu, but not Linux per se, will be running on in the next major Windows 10 update, Redstone.'

That’s right, folks--it says it all right here in black and white:
(1) Ubuntu is NOT Linux, and,
(2) Linux will NOT be running on Windows.

Congratulations are due all around: to Mark Shuttleworth, but mainly to the Linux community."

My understanding has always been that Linux is a kernel and all the distributions are sets of programs/utilities that work with Linux to form an OS. IOW, technically speaking, none of them are Linux.

Since I'm totally clueless when it comes to Linux, that sounds as reasonable as anything else...'-}}
