WSL improvements

Windows Subsystem for Linux - WSL improvements have been recently announced - https://devblogs.microsoft.com/commandline/

 

WSL 2 is on the way which will allow more Linux apps in WSL including Docker

 

A Linux kernel will ship with Windows especially tuned for WSL 2

 

WSL 2 will be much faster and have full system call compatibility.

 

A new console – now called a Terminal (more Linux terminology) will also become available for WSL, Windows Command prompt and most importantly PowerShell. It’ll feature multiple tabs

 

Windows Terminal will be shipped via the Windows Store  - do I really want to access an online Store for server software?
