Some libraries are really difficult to get working with wsl (open cv for example). There are also other issues with wsl which are inconvenient compared to native linux.

I actually run a dual boot system with win 10 and Ubuntu. I've found this is the easiest option, however I don't like having to reboot to be able to utilize the linux system, but it's the best outcome for me right now.
