Work demands that I run a Windows 10 laptop but I no longer run a Linux VM on the side. Apart from some slightly esoteric networky stuff like tcpdump WSL does it all and it feels like a native shell.

  • Windows key > “features”
  • Enable “Windows Subsystem for Linux”
  • Probably restart
  • Windows key > store
  • Install Ubuntu 20
  • And you’re away!
