Windows to become emulation layer on top of Linux...
It already is for me: I run Ubuntu 18.04 exclusively and simply Remmina (RDP) to Windows OS only when I have to. MS Teams runs natively on Ubuntu as does VS Code. I have not missed the painful update cycle at all. Just hope no one screws up Linux.
One of the absolutely stupidest things they do is they will start up a laptop with the lid closed and have it update itself and then stay on, even with the lid closed. Apparently the idiotic morons in Redmond think that is acceptable. IT IS NOT!
Stupid stuff like this makes me seriously question whether they know a damned thing about computers. That behavior indicates clearly
they do not.

11 months and counting since they tried an update with the lid closed and running on batteries and I chucked the SSD holding the POS that is Lose10 into a drawer. I bought the last laptop to avoid Lose8 and still its HDD lives on in this one..
Not seen that here. Running Mint and moving to LMDE (maybe they are setting up to move away from Ubuntu?). Run some Windows VM's for software maintenance. I think, but can't prove, that those VM's do better running under Linux.
If you can keep your head while those about you are losing theirs, perhaps you don't understand the situation.
Check out the updates I saw today when I booted up my main Ubuntu 18.04 box... https://i.stack.imgur.com/hoQ5Q.png[^]
There have been a lot of updates to the boot loader recently (due to some problems).
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
At home, I didn't see Windows for years...
I used to have VMs for SQL and VS, but today I run SQL directly on Linux and use VS Code...
Those few games I have (5-6) are all running on Wine, or native Linux...
So I can't see why add any more layers to that...

Surely it makes best use of their core strengths. MS have never really cracked the nuts and bolts of an OS and there has never been mass acceptance of Linux on the desktop. And before anyone jumps down my throat - I have been on Kubuntu for circa 10 years.
The only time I had an issue with Ubuntu was the one time I tried to upgrade from one LTS release to the next. Otherwise, I have had zero issues with about 6 machines I've had on Ubuntu since 2007.
Your issues with grub may be due to the developers not correctly dealing with dual boot systems? Don't know.
AFAIK, new Edge is built on the same Chromium platform (like Chrome) and uses less of computer's resources. Edge performs better than Chrome. People might have noticed and moving towards it. Win10 latest update is upgrading to Edge by default.
