Windows Subsystem for Linux is making inroads with developers
Jim Salter reminds us that Microsoft and Canonical cancelled the scheduled WSL for Linux developer conference at Microsoft's Redmond campus. Instead the conference was held online, comprising 22 speakers with 21 talks given: included topics focused on infosec, Devops automation, Kubernetes, and more. Recorded sessions will be available soon. Providing many pictures, we are then led into a tutorial and installation procedure, before speculating future developments for WSL2.

Forking Great: the Arc GTK Theme Lives!
Joey Sneddon blogs that a fork of the Arc GTK theme has picked up exactly where previous authors had left off. We are reminded the Arc GTK theme had died, lacking maintainers, and this new fork is an unofficial continuation. We are given details of the developer, jnsh, behind the fork.
