Hyper-V Quick Create Feature Makes Creating Ubuntu Virtual Machines Easier

Microsoft has collaborated with Canonical to make running Linux even easier on Windows 10. The Hyper-V Quick Create command in the upcoming Fall Creator's Update will feature a virtual machine image that can be launched by typing "Hyper-V Quick Create" in your start menu. In addition to the easier VM functionality, you can use the Windows Subsystem for Linux.

Today we're very pleased to announce that an optimised Ubuntu Desktop image is available from the Hyper-V gallery. This will give an optimum experience when running Ubuntu Desktop as a guest on a Windows 10 Pro desktop host. From the Ubuntu Report data we know that a lot of people are using Ubuntu as a virtual machine, and so we want to make that experience as seamless as possible.
