Microsoft Makes Room for Ubuntu at Windows Store

By John P. Mello Jr.

Microsoft has announced the availability of Canonical’s Ubuntu Linux distro as a free download in the Windows Store. It can be installed on any Windows Insider build, said Microsoft Senior Program Manager Rich Turner. There are some distinct advantages to using the Windows Store version of the Ubuntu Linux Distro: The software can be downloaded faster and more reliably due to the use of a sophisticated block-based download mechanism; and the store version has been enhanced to support running multiple distros side-by-side and simultaneously.
