Microsoft's Windows Subsystem for Linux Just Hit a Major Milestone
And now Windows 10 users with Windows Subsystem for Linux can use Linux GUI apps.
Microsoft's Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) for running GNU/Linux environments on Windows 10 and Windows 11 has reached version 1.0.0 and is now generally available.
Microsoft has been building WSL, including its own custom Linux kernel, for several years now. At first, WSL and WSL2 were an optional component within Windows, but last October Microsoft made the preview WSL available in the Microsoft Store as a separate app.
