[dba-Tech] Annoying

Linux having its own virtual machine within Windows is definitely better than the WSL.

Aside: I have always wondered why it has been called WSL as it really should be called LSW, Linux Subsystem for Windows...but what do I know.

If this new VM has no limitations and an additional OS IP address can be created then there can be a SSH server, for a Windows10 box and a huge group of other features become available. Of course it asks the next question; why run Windows as the VM host. It is much better suited as a client to a Linux host. :-)
