Windows Subsystem for Linux GUI

Windows Subsystem for Linux

Windows Subsystem for Linux GUI (WSLg):

WSLg is short for Windows Subsystem for Linux GUI and the purpose of the project is to enable support for running Linux GUI applications (X11 and Wayland) on Windows in a fully integrated desktop experience.

WSLg strives to make Linux GUI applications feel native and natural to use on Windows. From integration into the Start Menu for launch to appearing in the task bar, alt-tab experience to enabling cut/paste across Windows and Linux applications, WSLg enables a seamless desktop experience and workflow leveraging Windows and Linux applications.

Page will be a series on WSL’s new WSLg, and it looks like it could be a long one.
