NewsWSL 2 is now available in Windows Insiders Pin

We’re excited to announce starting today you can try WSL 2 by installing Windows build 18917 in the Insider Fast ring!
I'd love to know what's going through Linus' mind when he hears this

Only tangentially related. I was looking up the rules about possessives and names to confirm nothing had changed since I first learned it. It has - apparently (depending on the particular rules you follow), it can either be ' or 's. However, as I was searching, I found this, which amused me to no end (yes, I'm a dull fellow):

Special Rules for Classical Names
But there are a few exceptions. For classical and biblical names with two or more syllables ending in s or es, you usually just add an apostrophe. If the name is only one syllable, add -'s.

Socrates' students
Ramses' kingdom
Amos' prophecy
Zeus's warnings

The names Jesus and Moses are always made possessive with the apostrophe alone:

Jesus' disciples
Moses' law
