If anyone wanted to try Linux for a long time, but just never had a good reason to - now is as good time as any to do this.

@drq I just tested this on my windows 10 laptop. Not only did it give the same "error" message, but it also reset my hosts file to default. 🗡️

@drq @artilectzed Yep, it gives some time to respond to Defender popup and then resets.

It can get funny if someone has a lot of other records in this file because it seems like they are lost without backup.

@shuro @drq Luckily the things I had in there on this machine weren't too essential and only a few, but it just feels user-hostile to do that. It might look different to me given other situations that I would never actually fall into, but I'm not a fan of it.
