Oh, for more context, here is the announcement for WSL2 โ€“ https://devblogs.microsoft.com/commandline/announcing-wsl-2/

 

Massive kudos to Microsoft on innovating with WSL. The changes in WSL2 look amazing, and I honestly with I had a similar experience on my macOS laptop. Microsoft shipping a Linux kernel with Windows would make 17 year old me's head explode.

This is the biggest challenge in solving the surveillance capitalism problem: people value their money more than they value their privacy. I believe that a "for pay" alternative could work, but it will need an Amazon Prime-like approach, bundling social.

Ah, now I've got a squeaky clean, ultra dry crawl space. And it only cost me an arm and a leg!

 

There's nothing like a team of workers jackhammering in your crawl space to kill productivity.
