Why Windows subsystem for Linux?
- There is not need to using any extra software like Virtual-box, Vmware for virtualization.
- No extra memory waste of primary memory.
- Easy access Windows drive data using Linux terminal (/mnt/drive_name)
Let’s Fix it Out :
Last week i thought of using Linux on my new windows machine, as i am Linux lover and don’t like lag that we usually get while using windows command prompt (cmd). So, i have 3 chioces now, Either using virtual machine, Installing linux os alongside windows or using our New Windows subsystem for linux i.e. WSL also known as bash shell for windows.
So i tried opening app store and started searching for ubuntu app, but after hours of troubleshooting no luck as my windows app was blocked by my organisation.Yup it’s my office laptop and here the game begins, for installing the Linux bash shell windows app manually !!
So what to do now ?
- Ubuntu 18.04
- Ubuntu 18.04 ARM
- Ubuntu 16.04
- Debian GNU/Linux
- Kali Linux
- OpenSUSE Leap 42
- SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12
- Fedora Remix for WSL
