Once we had a better architectural understanding of how the whole Windows Subsystem worked, I thought we should get more into how processes actually run in this new context. It turns out to be way more interesting than I would have otherwise thought thanks to our resident superhero Nick Judge. He dives into a new kind of process called a "PicoProcesses" which are a brand new lightweight, secure process infrastructure coming to Windows 10. I thought this sounded a little scary until Nick explained how these things are governed and fit into the larger functionality that we've come to know as the Windows Subsystem for Linux (which enables Bash on Ubuntu on Windows). Enjoy!
