The Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) is a feature of Windows 10 which allows for a complete command-line Linux environment to exist natively within Windows.

  • Full instructions for getting up and running are found here, and it works on both WSLv1 and WSLv2.
  • Please make sure to use Debian for the smoothest installation experience. Ubuntu may require some finagling to get it to work (at least, it did as of November 2019).
  • The difference between WSLv1 and WSLv2 is that WSLv2 is more like installing a complete operating system inside Windows, while WSLv1 does not contain core kernel features. This makes no difference for KOS.
