I was surprised it didn't get more press or lead to a class action lawsuit. I lost valuable data and several days recovering from the virus infection, and I'm not the only person I know who was hit.
I had cancelled my previous AV subscription (Vipre way back then) and depended on Windows Defender for some time after reading that Defender was solid enough to handle the job. I purchased a Bitdefender subscription after Defender fell over and I got bit.
Actually, after spending several days trying to remove the virus with no success, I paid someone else to do it, so I lost time, money and valuable data. Makes me angry just thinking about it. Also, as you can see from the article, it was late 2014 and a Windows 7 update. I didn't recall it being that long ago, but that's the one that wiped me out.
is there any walkthrough for configuring php-fpm using unix socks on WSL ?

Windows Defender is killing my system while compiling. It's frigging unusable to use automake and autoconf ... FreeRadius 3.0.x takes over an hour on a Surface Book i7 to run. Adding bash.exe and lxss to the exclusions doesn't help at all it seems. Anyone have a solution to this?
@darrenstarr I have come across something similar on my Asus transformer i7 as well

I was wondering if it'd be acceptable to split up python between 2.x and 3.x in the overall list
I have a surface pro, starting a project that requires Git, Python 2.x, Django 1.11, pip, PostgreSQL, Node.js and npm. Should I stick with windows or try to work in linux, I could either set up a vagrant, vm ubuntu, dualboot ubuntu, or WSL ubuntu what do yall think would be best?

@Plew I suppose breathing some life here would be good. For the platform you're mentioning, I would highly recommend using WSL. You're not doing anything which requires absolute kernel compatibility. Can I recommend you consider using Docker instead since making a project like this on Docker/Docker Swarm is ridiculously easy. I use WSL from within Visual Studio Code for pretty much everything these days. And to be honest, your project sounds like it is meant specifically for Docker and Swarm. The only think you'd need to do fancy to make it work is to ensure that your PostgreSQL data is non-volatile. This is really very easy to accomplish with some form of persistent volumes.

I've been using the WSL for the last several months as my primary development env, I genuinely love it. Have yet to have any issues with it so far either.
Something I want to point out though, the overall I/O still leaves something to be desired though. if you're executing code ( compiling stuff from source is where I see the most slowdown...) inside the WSL, it can get slow.
I have wsl ubuntu can I get XRDP and a GUI Ubuntu desktop working
I can't seem to find a how to
Would I do something like this
echo "Update system and then install xubuntu-desktop" sudo apt update sudo apt upgrade -y sudo apt install -y xubuntu-desktop xorg xrdp echo "Setting xrdp port to 3390" sudo sed -i 's/port=3389/port=3390/g' /etc/xrdp/xrdp.ini
what is a better terminal emualtor in windows
I recently downloaded the Windows Subsystem for Linux (Ubuntu) and want to set the theme to Seashells (https://github.com/mbadolato/iTerm2-Color-Schemes) for the default terminal. I put the theme into my linux ~/.Xresources file and tried to run xrdb -load .Xresources but then I got that xrdb: Can't open display ''. I was wondering how to actually just set the theme or if I have to use a terminal emulator like wsltty. In properties, it seems like you can only set the colors for the screen/popup text and background, but the .Xresources file has a lot more than just 4 colors and I'm a bit confused about that.
