The word "tiny" pretty much explains why Microsoft has decided to turn to Linux instead of Windows for this project. The OS is designed to run on a new class of microcontroller chip (MCU) with limited resources, and Windows can't shrink down enough to fit.

My reaction when I first came across the terms counter and gauge and the graphs with colors and numbers labeled "mean" and "upper 90" was one of avoidance. It's like I saw them, but I didn't care because I didn't understand them or how they might be useful. Since my job didn't require me to pay attention to them, they remained ignored.
That was about two years ago. As I progressed in my career, I wanted to understand more about our network applications, and that is when I started learning about metrics.
Being able to save open applications and window positions and restore them later can be useful in multiple situations and environments, like work, easily switching between tasks with predefined running apps and windows, and so on. Window Session Manager is an extension for Gnome Shell that lets you save and restore open applications and window positions / arrangements over multiple real and virtual displays, for X (including XWayland).
Managing an open source project is challenging work, and the challenges grow as a project grows. Eventually, a project may need to meet different requirements and span multiple repositories. These problems aren't technical, but they are important to solve to scale a technical project. Business process management methodologies such as agile and kanban bring a method to the madness.

Back in 1996 I learned how to install software on my spanking new Linux before really understanding the topography of the filesystem. You see, back then, Linux was not the intuitive, user-friendly system it is today. I soon realized I would need to spend some time getting a handle on how the directories were organized and what all their exotic names like etc/ (not a for miscellaneous files), usr/ (not for user files), and bin/ (not a trash can) meant. This tutorial will help you get up to speed faster than I did.
It's not hidden that apart from costing tons of money, the use of proprietary software also brings along hidden security caveats. These are the two primary reasons why the usage of open source software is being pushed in public agencies all around the world, especially in European countries.
