How To Install and Use Windows Subsystem for Linux 2

June 14, 2019 / Tom Fenton

Yesterday (June 12, 2019) Microsoft released Windows 10 Insider Preview Version 1903 Build 18917.1000. This is the first Windows build that has the second generation of Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL 2) included in it. I wrote another article detailing what WSL 2 is and why it is such an important development for Microsoft's users. In this article, I'll show you how to enable WSL 2, how to install a Linux distro that can use WSL 2, show you some new switches that can be used with the wsl command, and then share my final thoughts on WSL 2.
