In a bevy of expected announcements on day 2 of BUILD 2017, including the formal reveal that the next big version of Windows 10 will be called “Windows 10 Fall Creators Update,” Microsoft also delivered some unexpected tidbits – and if hell isn’t freezing over today, its possible that it never will.
Those two unexpected announcements:
iTunes is coming to the Windows Store by the end of this year. Windows users will get the complete iTunes experience, including Apple Music and the iTunes Store, as well as support for iPhone and other Apple devices on any Windows 10 or Windows 10 S PC.
Microsoft has simplified the install of Ubuntu by bringing it to the Windows Store. Microsoft also announced it is working with SUSE Linux and Fedora Linux running on the Windows Subsystem for Linux — to bring them to the Windows Store. Now, Windows is the only platform that can run both Windows apps and Linux apps side-by-side.
