Microsoft’s love for Linux

Microsoft focusing more on the Linux ecosystem isn’t necessarily surprising, as the company is makes huge efforts to expand in this world.

And the Windows Subsystem for Linux, which is currently at the second generation in Windows 10, is the living proof in this regard, as it allows users to run Linux on top of Windows. The new version that debuted with the May 2020 Update (or version 2004) also comes with a Linux kernel, and the most popular distributions are already available, including Ubuntu.

The new antivirus is supposed to offer a full command line experience on the client, but what admins need to know is that installing the Microsoft Defender ATP for Linux requires a Microsoft Defender ATP for Servers license.
