easyWSL tool can directly convert more Linux Docker images into WSL subsystems
The Windows Subsystem for Linux allows developers to directly access Linux tools through Windows. Currently, Linux system developers including Ubuntu, SUSE, Kali Linux, Debian, etc. have produced WSL systems and uploaded them to the Microsoft Store for developers to download.
However, not all Linux systems support downloading through the Microsoft Store. If the developer has not developed the WSL version and uploaded it to the Microsoft Store, users will not be able to use it. But now there is a new tool that provides wider usability for Linux users: the EasyWSL tool created by the network security company Red Code Labs.
This tool supports the conversion of more Linux Docker images into WSL systems that support Windows. With the popularity of Docker, most developers have provided Linux Docker images, and EasyWSL now happens to use these images. After the conversion, EasyWSL will also automatically install and deploy the corresponding WSL, so it is very convenient to use.
Currently supported systems include Archlinux, Ubuntu 20.04/20.10, Alpine, Debian stable, Debian beta, CentOS, Clear Linux, Fedora, Manjaro, Scientific Linux, Crux Linux, Void Linux, Kali Linux, OpenSUSE Leap, Parrot Security OS, Gentoo, and Specify as well as a docker image.
As an open-source tool, EasyWSL is only downloaded and deployed, and the image is still obtained from the repository of the Linux development team, so it is relatively safer. Interested users can download EasyWSL from here and learn how to use it.
