Today, we're excited to announce that Canonical's Ubuntu Linux Distro is now available in the Windows Store and can be downloaded and installed on any Windows Insider build >= #16215!

Eventually this will be available to all regular Windows 10 users.

I'd love to see Steve Ballmer's reaction to this!

It's not as if they're advocating that people download it from the Windows Store, install it and run it instead of Windows.

Or even like BeOS 5 Personal Edition, where it executed from within Windows, then rebooted into BeOS.
