Linux subsysteem in Windows


  • Ubuntu

Tested the Linux subsystem in the Windows environment. For testing, I put Ubuntu 18.04. Microsoft only works with the LTS version of Ubuntu. There is also support for Debian, Kali, and Open Leap. The system in this case works as an add-on, so it uses the same hardware and ip address as windows. Naturally, only bash is available. This is enough to make a web server or monitoring system.

Of the disadvantages, I can note that not all functions work. For example, systemctl does not work. To start the service and reboot, you will have to use init.d.
