- WLinux includes wslu, a set of useful open-source utilities for interacting between WSL and Windows 10.
- A custom wlinux-setup tool, accessible via $ wlinux-setup allows new WLinux users to get started on Linux immediately.
- Support for many Linux graphical applications with no need to configure display or libGL in Wlinux. (Requires a Windows-based X client, such as X410.)
- Install over 25,353 open source packages via the apt package management system from the expansive Debian repositories and any third-party Debian-compatible repositories from outside projects.
- A handful of unnecessary packages, such as systemd, have been removed from the base image to reduce image size and increase stability.
- New features are actively developed based on community input. You can earn paid grants improving WLinux.
- Linux apps execute at native speed. CPU-intensive tasks perform as fast or faster on WSL than Linux on bare metal with little to no overhead.
