I wouldn't really call it a merge. It's prospects are WAY more than I would have ever gave them credit for but it still has its limitations. It's called WSL (Windows Subsystem for Linux) and is mostly an integration with BASH and a few other things giving system access while in Windows and of course the ability to then 'run' and generate stuff as if you were in Ubuntu. There is no linux kernel or real filesystem however.
