We all want to use linux without leaving the Windows. And some of the time that can be hard. Also the amount of things Linux can give you makes you want to switch. Linux has plenty of uses that is something you can easily manage. In such case you have to understand that Microsoft is doing this under the policy of Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL). It is one of the good things that are being released by the Microsoft. And with enough more research, it’d be possible to run the Linux inside Windows without having to work hard much. Also in future who knows you can have the GUI and other apps too. In this article, I want to discuss what are some of the updates that Windows 10 has and how they are changing the way things are being updated.
Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) App
As you can see the Windows Build conference is coming up with lot of updates. And they are adding the changes into the operating system. One change they did is adding the Linux OS as an app. Though they did not add any specific kernel or so. Instead they added distributions on their Windows store. And this makes it possible for anyone to run command line programs on the Wndows 10. So this may not appear as the most biggest change out there. But it can be safely a good change for any developer who wants to manage the Linux based app on the Windows command prompt.
I think this update is going to be available with Windows 10 S. And with enough updates coming around. They may offer to many other people who want to get hold of the OS. For example Professional and the Enterprise edition may get more updates for now. And this may include the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL). You can see that the home version of the Windows 10 does not have that. I think we should check out how the update is going to bring changes in the way linux can be used. I would love to see the way windows allows linux to be part of their system in future.
Apps In Store
I think the free apps that contain ubuntu, suse and fedora can be a good option. You can definitely make use of those apps in the store. You can surely change the way you used to work in the windows with the virtualization. Because in past such changes have surely made the progress. And with more people doing this it can be worth checking out how it can be good enough for the most of the people out there. I would like to say that this Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) App can be a good source of development for many linux users who want to use windows. so it’s a nice thing.
Have you tried ubuntu or fedora in Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) App? I am sure it can be really good for many developers who want to test small apps on both the ecosystem there as well.
