Windows Subsystem for Linux supports to run Linux GUI applications
Since Microsoft released the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL), the company has paid great attention to this feature.
In the previous version update, Microsoft has released an optimized and improved WSL 2 version, this version has a new feature worthy of attention is to support graphical programs.
It’s just that the support for graphics programs in the stable channel did not appear. Until now, Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 21364 finally brings this feature that users expect.
Microsoft today released Windows 10 Dev Build 21364 to bring experience activities to developers, and Linux GUI programs can be run on Windows 10.
For most developers, it does not seem to have much impact on whether the WSL has a graphical interface or not, after all, it has become accustomed to using the command line to operate.
However, for novices, a graphical interface can be more convenient for operation, so based on user feedback, Microsoft has planned to bring support for Linux GUI applications before.
The new development version released this time is the first version of Windows 10 that supports Linux GUI apps. If there are no surprises, these new features will officially arrive in the 21H2 version.
After supporting graphics programs, developers can now open GUI editors, tool software, and other applications in the Linux system on Windows 10.
Microsoft will continue to improve this feature in the future. If developers encounter problems when using this feature, please actively provide feedback to Microsoft through the Microsoft community.
