Ubuntu on Windows -- The Ubuntu Userspace for Windows Developers A team of sharp developers at Microsoft has been hard at work adapting some Microsoft research technology to basically perform real time translation of Linux syscalls into Windows OS syscalls. Linux geeks can think of it sort of the inverse of "wine" -- Ubuntu binaries running natively in Windows. Microsoft calls it their "Windows Subsystem for Linux". [more inside]

MetaListing to Port

I am inspired by YesButNoButYes's 2006 List of Lists of Lists, which rightfully includes Fimoculous' List of Lists and The list of McSweeney's Lists, but missed BestWeekEver's 10 Best Lists (ironically only #7 of their 10 Best 10 Best Lists) and Alternet's (less political than usual) Ten Best Top-Ten Lists. I would have put these in numerical order, but you all would have killed me for it. There's also the perennial (Not Necessarily Canonical) List of Canonical Lists, and while not thoroughly Meta, I loved Valleywag's Top Ten Rules for a Top Ten List (ironically under-Digged) and Letterman's Top Ten Signs You Are Not One Of The Most Fascinating People Of 2006 (of which, only #4 applies to me) via Miss C. who also compiled the first list and who I am NOT cyberstalking, honest!
