Deciding from the terms of the recently discovered new files like “Lxss” can be the “Linux Subsystem”. The name of this build is similar to Android Subsystem from Project Astoria, ADSS.Sys.
These new files indicate the return of Project Astoria, since build 1421 is the first One-core version of the operating system developed exclusively for mobile, Xbox One, and Hololens.

One possible reason that could have provoked the decline of Project Astoria was that Android Apps would only operate on Windows 10 Mobile Version. Project Astoria, also known as Windows Bridge for Android, is a toolkit that permits android apps to run on Windows 10 Mobile Version. So, there are more chances that Microsoft is looking forward to Linux System Support for projects in the Future.
In a Blog Post, Microsoft revealed Windows 10 Insider Build 14251.
As we noted, this new build does not come with new and significant features, So Microsoft says it came with several fixes for bugs discovered by its engineering crew. The bugs which were fixed are mentioned below :
- An issue that causes PC games to crash when the user changes from windowed mode to full screen upon launch or game resolution change.
- An issue in which File Explorer crashes when DPI settings are at 175 percent.
- Applications, including Magnifier, Narrator, and third-party assistive technologies, crash intermittently.
So, this is all about the new build rolled out by Windows, which may have a Linux subsystem hidden inside. We hope you loved this article; feel free to share this with your friends.
