If anyone wanted to try Linux for a long time, but just never had a good reason to - now is as good time as any to do this.

@0 @Wraptile

Why?

Maybe the JS map() with an arrow function looks better in that case, but IMO list-comprehensions are more powerful and easier to read.

You can create a list/set/dict from any iterable (not necessary a list object!). Also, you can filter while iterating:

>>> [i+10 for i in a if i % 2 == 1]
[11, 13]

For me it's easier to remember how it works a list-comprehension than filter. I never remember if `filter()` filters the values when the lambda returns true or false...

@0 I'd suggest writing the code like this:

```
>>> a = [1, 2, 3]
>>> list(map(lambda i: i+10, a))
[11, 12, 13]
>>> # or
>>> [i+10 for i in a]
[11, 12, 13]
>>>
```

Someone on the birdsite had the idea of applying flat colors to their #gimp tool icons in order to group them. I followed suit and I really love the result!

And btw, I absolutely love that I have the freedom to make adjustments like this. Good luck changing a single thing about Photoshop.

WSL is MSFT's attempt to "enclose" Linux entirely within Windows. This is MSFT's only option due to Linux's GPL v2 license. But, to be frank, WSL is the worst of both worlds - Linux, but constrained by the arbitrary limitations of Windows. Yes, MSFT trying to control the platform.

If you want to use Linux... why not just use Linux? There's literally nothing standing in your way. Using WSL is voluntarily making yourself a pawn for MSFT's proprietary interests.

Windows Subsystem for Linux is a horrible, pointless initiative... unless you're Microsoft.

Microsoft has built its $trillion business on *controlling the platform* and exploiting its users. Windows is slowly decaying, and, tellingly, the crucial developers Windows needs to stay relevant... are moving to Linux, and few look back.
