Today we’re very pleased to announce that an optimised Ubuntu Desktop image is available from the Hyper-V gallery. This will give an optimum experience when running Ubuntu Desktop as a guest on a Windows 10 Pro desktop host. From the Ubuntu Report data we know that a lot of people are using Ubuntu as a virtual machine, and so we want to make that experience as seamless as possible.
This is probably the most seamless way to run an Ubuntu virtual machine on Windows.
I’m not much of a tinkerer anymore, but I can still remember way back when, installing Slackware to a spare partition (when it took me a couple of days to get XFree up and running), and compiling QT and KDE 1 from source. Glad to see things are getting easier for folks who want to try something other than Windows. You youngsters don’t know how good you have it now days
