May 20 news Microsoft today announced a major update of Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) at the Build 2020 developer conference. This update adds support for hardware acceleration allowing Linux GUI applications to run directly on Windows 10. In this way anyone can easily run their favorite Linux applications on Windows.
With this update Microsoft has added support for GPU computing workflow allowing Linux tools to use GPU to enable hardware acceleration for many development scenarios such as parallel computing and training machine learning ( ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) models.
The support for Linux GUI applications will enable you to open WSL instances and run Linux GUI applications directly without the need for a third-party X server. This will help you run your favorite applications in a Linux environment (such as an integrated development environment IDE).
It is learned that in addition WSL will soon support a simplified installation experience by running the command 'wsl.exe –install'. It is easier than ever to start using Linux applications on Windows.?wsxsvc-wsxsvc.exe-Process Information-Computer Knowledge Network
