New Windows apps and games

Ubuntu on Windows Community Preview

Ubuntu on Windows Community Preview is a special version of Ubuntu for the Windows Subsystem for Linux. The main purpose of the version is to act as a sandbox for testing new features and for getting feedback from the community.

It is intended for early adopters and the team plans to run A/B tests regularly to test new features.

Basically, what it allows you to do is set the preferred folder view, level of detail (headers), and other parameters for all folders, or to reset all folder views.
