"Actually it's GNU+Windows"

Published on

Is it weird that the thing that people are most excited for about this in my eyes is everything that GNU has been saying constitutes the GNU part of GNU/Linux for the better part of two decades?

Sure, there is a kernel implementation of POSIX syscall ABI. But there is the ELF executable support provided by glibc But there is the glibc ABI itself But there is the set of GNU coreutils

The kernel syscall ABI unlocks these features, but without the glibc and ELF support it's a non-event.
