1 min read

At the Build 2019 conference two days ago, Microsoft announced that Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) 2 will adopt a new architecture, using a real Linux kernel. Microsoft’s full embrace of open source projects such as Linux has brought a lot of surprises to developers. After the release of Ubuntu, SUSE Linux, and Fedora in the Microsoft Store, the popular Linux distribution Arch Linux is available on Microsoft Store.

Of course, if you want to run a Linux distribution on Windows 10, you need to enable the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) settings on your system first.
