Yes just to get a linux experience on linux. Be mindful of the fact that this WSL is a customized wrapper and has it's own restrictions.

I guess the main purpose is to be able to work within linux dev environment when programming, when you are attatched to Windows for different reasons. I personally have never experienced any restrictions in that area yet. Woud you be so kind to name some? I am honestly curious about it 😃

WSL is incomplete, you don't get hardware access (according to my memory).
