Microsoft SFU: An impressive product

Microsoft has recently released SFU 3.5 for free download. This is an amazing product because it also enables running Unix programs under Windows natively.

What will you think about having to run an emulator when there’s something claimed to be “natively” supported? The example in Windows apparently bores me a lot because the operating system itself has claimed POSIX subsystem built in from the NT ages, but there’s nothing actually runs under it to be reported.

Now, with SFU everything changed. My first impression is that it’s very fast. Also, there’re numerous applications to be supplied here. Well, the number is not so large at present, but everything I need is there: OpenSSH, cvs, etc…

Still too early to use SFU with wincvs… I find it hard to get ssh run with it :(
