It's time to challenge some long-held assumptions.
Today's Btrfs is not yesterday's hot mess, but a modern battle-tested filesystem, and we'll prove it.
Plus our thoughts on GitHub dropping the term "master", and the changes Linux should make NOW to compete with commercial desktops.

We load up Windows 10 with WSL2, the new Terminal, and give it a go to see what it does better than Linux. Then we dive into the deep end and attend the first-ever WSLConf.

We're myth-busting this week as we take a perfectly functioning production server and switch it to Arch. Is this rolling distro too dangerous to run in production, or can the right approach unlock the perfect server? We try it so you don't have to.
