Tonight on GeekNights, we consider the Windows Subsystem for Linux, now that WSL 2 is coming. Is this the final nail in the coffin of desktop Linux? Will OSX developers start migrating back to Windows? Is WINE finally dead? Time will tell. In the news, SCOTUS is allowing consumers to sue Apple on antitrust grounds, Amazon is trying to trick employees into quitting to become subcontractors, and if you play stupid games, you win stupid prizes.
Tonight on GeekNights, we discuss SNMP: the Simple Network Management Protocol, and how you can trivially use it to monitor Linux servers. In the news, Adobe moves to a subscription model and drops Soundbooth (thankfully), human brains are more malleable than one might think, and Google is liable in Italy for defamation from search results.
