Get WSL2 working on Windows 10
Unless you’ve been living in a cave devoid of technology for the last year, you’ve likely already heard of (and tried) Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL). As per Microsoft’s documentation:
The Windows Subsystem for Linux lets developers run a GNU/Linux environment — including most command-line tools, utilities, and applications — directly on Windows, unmodified, without the overhead of a virtual machine.
Basically, it’s a compatibility layer for the Linux kernel, allowing you to run Linux binaries in Windows.
