In V1 Linux System Calls are translated by an API for the Windows Kernel. In V2 a real Linux-Kernel runs on a Hypervisor, Hyper-V i guess ;) https://devblogs.microsoft.com/commandline/announcing-wsl-2/ What makes it more complicated to get is the fact, that you need an Windows Insider Build from the fast ring Cheers Marc Am Fr., 2.
