Using and Customizing WSL

About WSL

WSL stands for Windows Subsystem for Linux.
It allows you too run Linux binary natively on Windows 10.

That means:

  • Run Windows and Linux softwares simultaniously
  • No VM needed
  • No Emulator needed
  • No extra cost for the system

Some of the benchmarks run on WSL generated results close to those running Linux directly on the same hardware, showing that WSL does well in terms of performance
