Microsoft is certainly at least flirting with virtual reality and Oculus, as evidenced by the number of things the two companies are working on together. The other question is the hardware: Is the Xbox One powerful enough to do VR well?
Remember that the Gear VR has any number of great VR experiences, and that's powered by a phone. It's just a matter of designing for your target platform.
"That's the thing, you can absolutely deliver a great VR experience on Xbox One, what I should say is with the hardware that's in the Xbox One," Mitchell said. "We're not really focused on it right now. It really depends on the content you want to put there."
@Bas: this answered some of your qs, tethered, fov limited.
@cheong: its better than Cygwin/MinGW.
as I said, its about running Linux binaries directly, not a recompiled port.

Microsoft and Canonical partner to bring Ubuntu to Windows 10
I agree, maybe that's why Rich Turner and Scott Hanselman deleted their tweets after media get hyped.
So my guess now is officially "Android apps on Windows (Phone)", which would be awesome, if perhaps a little late?
Ben Armstrong is a Principle Program Manager at Microsoft who works on the Hyper-V development team focused on building the next release of Hyper-V and on delivering the core technology for Windows Server containers.
Mike Harsh is another developer who used to work on Silverlight for Windows Phone, while Scott Hanselman is the Principal Community Architect for Web Platform and Tools at Microsoft.
glad you're doing research. now here is my analysis, enjoy

Russ also contributed to this GitHub repo: https://github.com/Build2016/sinatrademo
there was a same repo under Scott Hansleman's account https://github.com/shanselman/sinatrademo
this repo was pulled after I tweeted about it.
the other contributor of the sinatrademo repo is Yosef Durr,
he will present "Windows Command Line Improvements"
in a commit info of shanelman's sinatrademo repo, russalex mentioned a url contains lxss.
there is a lxss.sys file in rencent build of Windows Redstone deskop build, its modified from
Project Astoria's adss.sys (Android Subsystem), lxss.sys means "Linux Subsystem"
also there is such a package name:
AoW means "Android-on-Windows", but AoW-Desktop ?? I think the code is now repurposed.
