So all Insiders can now upgrade WSL 1 to the new one version, for better performance and much better compatibility.
WSL 2 is the next version of Microsoft Subsystem for Linux and includes a genuine open source Linux kernel (the kernel was developed by Microsoft) based on version 4.19 from Kernel.org. As WSL 2 will use a real Linux kernel, Linux applications will now have full access to all system calls.
Be aware that this is the first public release of WSL 2, which means it can be problematic.
Before you can run Windows Subsystem for Linux 2, you must first make sure you are running Windows 10 Insider build 18917 or later.
