    Hi folks

    Not sure if I missed it -but I didn't see enable sybsystem for Linux in this build in programs and features - enable windows features etc -- however enabling it and the vm environment via powershell command was OK - now I see it in the windows programs and features as enabled.

    Might be that I missed it but I don't think so.

    Anyway it's working (WSL 2)

    Cheers

    It's still there Jimbo.

    Hi folks

    WSL2 breaks running any GUI programs you had working with WSL1 -- seen some suggestions on Google but I'll wait until some more people have played with it -- seems there's a problem with accessing the display properly due to generated IP addresses -- but I'm not fiddling with that any more.

    Running Ubuntu LTS on WSL1 with lightweight LXDE desktop works - some GUI programs run as they do if you install the KDE desktop.

    WSL2 breaks the whole kybosh -- but for running command line scripts and non GUI executables it seems fine (WSL2) . You need to install an X-server on windows and use the XLaunch icon on your desktop before starting the Linux GUI -- also you'll need to export DISPLAY=0:0 before using your command on wsl to launch the GUI e.g startlxde. (Lxde is s super dooper lightweight desktop gui which is good for testing if the thing works --you can install more heavyweight stuff once you've got the X-Server working properly.

    OK WSL isn't meant to be a complete Linux desktop distro or a fully endowed virtual machine - but what's wrong in testing these things to their limits !!!!

    What is nice is you can reset or switch your Linux distro to WSL1 or WSL2 back and forth without having to re-install your distro -- you can also set the default WSL level -- I'd keep the default at 1 until WSL2 is a bit more commonly used -- most things (non GUI) that work on WSL1 will probably work on WSL2 -- file manager is good on WSL2 and you can natively access Linux file systems (with long file names too !!!!!) over a LAN or even attached to the Windows machine. The Windows machine is simply another server as far as WSL2 is concerned.

    Cheers

    That's probably the Defender Platform Update.

    I don't want to update this Build. This Build is smooth.

    @jimb045. Since I have VMware installed on my Windows 10 for Workstation I set the WSL to 1 where of course I can run an XServerf and GUI programs, like for example, synaptic in Ubuntu WSL. I periodically run VMware vCenter Standalone to make a VM of Windows installation, which I can then run on Linux.
