    Microsoft Defender for Linux - Microsoft's server-based Linux protection program - is now offering a public preview of improved endpoint detection and response (EDR) features.


    I know it's still hard for some of you to wrap your minds around it, but Microsoft really does support Linux these days. A case in point: Back in June, Microsoft released Microsoft Defender Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) for Linux for general use. Now, Microsoft has improved the Linux version of Defender, by adding a public preview of endpoint detection and response (EDR) capabilities.

    This is still not a version of Microsoft Defender you can run on a standalone Linux desktop. Its primary job remains to protect Linux servers from server and network threats. If you want protection for your standalone desktop, use such programs as ClamAV or Sophos Antivirus for Linux.

    I agree with Linus Torvalds - Apple's new M1-powered laptops should run on Linux.
