WTF?

Hello:

---

The announcement post does, however, hint at better two-way interaction between Windows and Linux with the reminder that while “Linux files are NOT accessible from Windows” Microsoft is “working to improve this scenario over time”.

---

Hmmm ...

Looks bad, sounds bad, smells bad ...

What could it possibly be?

My Linux rig boots MS (XPSP3) just a handful of times a year only to run specific software not available in Linux and in a VM without any external connections.

IMO, " ... better two-way interaction between Windows and Linux ... " is as needed as an outbreak of avian flu in the Metro.

And ... “working to improve this scenario over time” ... should be treated as a threat, no less.

I cannot believe that some Reg readers could actually consider using this a viable option.

I would not let this crap near my Linux install.

As always, YMMV.

Cheers.
