Microsoft greatly strengthens the Linux it has integrated into Windows 10

The “Windows Subsystem for Linux” (WSL) that Windows 10 has been integrating for four years is fast becoming a real OS in the OS.
Released last year, version 2 of WSL is based on a real Linux kernel and will finally be officially available by the end of the month, through the Windows 10 May Update 2020.

Once activated, WLS 2 runs in a Hypervisor virtual machine and can, according to Microsoft, launch in less than two seconds. During its execution, this new version of the subsystem would be three to six times more efficient than the previous one.

But Microsoft does not intend to stop there. At the Build 2020 conference, the publisher announced the upcoming addition of a GUI to WSL 2, which will launch applications with windows. Until now, users could only use command lines.

At the same time, WSL 2 will soon integrate support for graphics chips. The goal is not to be able to run video games, but to allow massively parallel calculations, based on frameworks such as Cuda or DirectML. As you can see, the target audience is above all that of developers.
