WSL improvements

Posted by: | May 19, 2019 Comments Off on 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?

under: Windows 10
