Now We Can Use Debian and Linux Times on Microsoft Windows 10

Debian and Kali Linux have joined Ubuntu and SUSE on Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL). That means we can also install Debian and Times Linux on Windows 10 in the App Store just like any other app.

Last week Microsoft has announced the availability of Debian and Kali Linux distros in Windows Subsystem for Linux. You can download both distributions from the Microsoft Store and install them just like any other Windows 10 app. In this way, you get a command line version of this Linux distribution.

Previously, Kali has announced on their site in January that they "always conspire for a new environment to run Kali on, and with the introduction of Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) in Windows 10, new and exciting possibilities have emerged. "

They also signaled the entry of other Debian-based distributions to the WSL in the same announcement," It should not be too difficult to combine distributions like other Debian, is it? "

This shows that Microsoft has kept its promise at the 2017 Build conference to provide more Linux distributions in the Microsoft Store for use on Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL).

To download and install Linux applications on a Windows 10 subsystem using WSL, you must first enable the optional Windows feature. You should also check our screenshot guide to install Linux via WSL. The installation procedure is the same for all Linux distributions available on the Windows Store.

Times Linux also has an official video showing quick installation process.

According to Kali Linux, they have also successfully run XFCE trials in the WSL although not yet officially supported. You can see this video on how to install xfce4 on Linux Times via WSL, Windows 10.

Given so many hackers wannabe tried to use Linux Times, maybe now they will have an easier way to install it. Although I'm not sure whether using Kali Linux is a good idea. Debian is a much better choice for all computing purposes. What are you thinking about?
