WLinux is a Linux environment for Windows 10 built on work by Microsoft Research and the Debian project.
Access to over 25,353 open-source packages to fuel your productivity. Easily install and upgrade packages using the powerful apt package management system. Add and install from official Debian-compatible repositories. Use aptitude or synaptic GUI tools to browse and install new packages.
WLinux includes wlinux-setup to help get your work environment up and running swiftly. Easily install Python, Go, Ruby, NodeJS, PowerShell, and Azure Cloud tools, among others. You can always update to the latest version of wlinux-setup to get the latest features. We also accept requests.
WLinux does not perform emulation or operate in a virtual machine, the WSL translation layer executes Linux binaries natively, translating Linux syscalls to Windows syscalls. CPU-intensive tasks perform as fast or faster on WSL than Linux on bare metal with little to no overhead. Install and use the latest open source machine learning, artificial intelligence, and data science tools directly on Windows.
Access your C:\ drive at /mnt/C automatically. Copy and paste from Visual Studio into Emacs. Open Word from zsh. Pipe ifconfig.exe output into a Python script. It is a hybrid world. WLinux bridges the gap between Windows and Linux. WLinux also includes wslutilities to make working in the hybrid world easier.
Apache, PostgreSQL, MySQL, ngnix, NodeJS, npm, and PHP. Build and run your web app on WLinux using the best tools, plugins, and libraries that open source has to offer. WLinux is particularly useful for frontend developers new to Linux.
WLinux is the first Linux distribution created specifically for WSL. It was created by WSL users who recognized the potential of the platform. The project is open source and community input is highly encouraged. Purchases through the Microsoft Store employ developers to add features, test builds, provide user support, and patch security bugs. WSL is supported by a growing online community and officially supported by Microsoft on Windows 10 and Windows Server 2019.
We have actively worked to improve support for non-English speakers and those with non-Latin input methods. "wlinux-setup" currently offers localization and key bindings for terminal applications. Features to improve input in graphical applications is planned in our next release. Documentation has been translated into both Chinese and Japanese.
我々は、非英語のスピーカーと非ラテン語の入力方法とのサポートを改善するために積極的に取り組んできました。"wlinux-setup " は現在、ターミナルアプリケーションのローカリゼーションとキーバインディングを提供しています。次のリリースでは、グラフィカルアプリケーションでの入力を改善する機能が計画されています。
