I recently returned to unix shell and have found installing ubuntu through the microsoft store quick and painless. Anyone else have this experience?

And if not, what's wrong with it? Seems too good to be true.

Well Microsoft has touched it and stained it forever. You had
better have some brilliant security technician look at the project
because Microslut is capturing the information from Windows users
and selling it to people to decide what you want to spend money on.
So since it has been in the abode of evil can it come out
un-bugged? I think the chances are about even that it either
joins you to the Microsoft User information base or that
your Ubuntu installation is pure. I am not that security
technician by any means but find a Linux Users Group
in your general vicinity and see if they can offer
consultation.

Also what registration does Microsoft require if any?

IMHO
bliss

It is not a real Linux, it is not accessing the hardware directly. But
you can run some Linux applications and tools. Just enjoy it :-)

I have not tried it myself (because my main system is Linux, not
Windows). If it works for you, it is probably easier/faster than a
virtual machine.

Some people use it simply to be able to run bash scripts in Windows :-D

I just started using it to telnet into a shell account. Its simple to
use and works okay, although there's some screen refresh issues in vi.

I also noticed one telnet site I couldnt reach via windows/linux under
windows was readibly accessible via the shell account. Ping also was
not able to trace the route properly under windows.

Odd.

Thanks for your reply. :)

Telnet? Not ssh? :-o :-?
