Re: native Linux userland in Windows 10

Welcome, poor child of a big blue button. Let me introduce you into my world.
The world, where file managers help you manage files.

Right now, I hit Alt+Shift+D, which invokes a short macro calling menu entry
view:<? diff -x "CVS" -x ".svn" -I "\$Id.*\$" -I "\$Rev.*\$" -I "\$Date.*\$" -I "\$Author.*\$" -I "\$URL.*\$" -I "^Orbiting .*$" !?$UnixDiff$Options ((-c, -b etc.)):?! --strip-trailing-cr -- "!#!\!.!" "!^!\!.!"
and get two files (or directories) on opposite panels diffed into an internal
viewer. Because Cygwin diff consume normal Windows paths without an issue.

How is this relevant to the discussion?
