re: What is your opinion of WSL VIEW POST


I think it's in the right direction, but still need work to become closer to actually running Linux "natively".

Somethings still don't work, like Docker.

And performance improvements.

But it's already very useful.


WSL2 literally runs Linux natively. In a lightweight VM upon which distros run hosted in their own containers.


That's why I used double-quotes. Although it's native on a VM, the experience from the developer perspective is not the same. Hence the mentions in the comments about things that still don't work on WSL as well (or at all) as in non-VM Linux.
