Fight the Chaos of Windows 10 : Use Virtual Desktops & Linux

by Mike Levin

Friday, September 02, 2022

This is the beginning of a reboot of my “Make Windows 10” usable series, now with an emphasis on fighting the chaos. I’m trying to make my videos short and to the point now, consistent with shrinking attention spans and the need to contest shrinking attention spans. Eliminate distractions and get into the zone. Use Virtual Desktops and the Windows Subsystem for Linux ( WSL ). Strip out the tiles from the start bar. Turn of the clock. Remove all Taskbar icons. If you’re a Jupyter Notebook or JupyterLab user, run the server Linux-side under GNU Screen and get all the advantages of forward slashes and Linux FOSS repos under Jupyter, setting the stage for true automation.
