Announcing WSL 2 (Windows Subsystem for Linux)


https://devblogs.microsoft.com/commandline/announcing-wsl-2/

WSL 2 uses an entirely new architecture that uses a real Linux kernel.

dramatic file system performance increases
full system call compatibility, meaning you can run more Linux apps in WSL 2 such as Docker.

Using WSL 2 means you can also get the most recent improvements to the Linux kernel much faster than in WSL 1, as we can simply update the WSL 2 kernel rather than needing to reimplement the changes ourselves.
