Microsoft wants to make Linux installation simpler

Linux is already an essential part of Windows 10 and everything Microsoft wants for its operating system. It serves as a development platform and for accessing features that would otherwise be more complicated to obtain.


If for now having access to this novelty is not exactly simple, Microsoft wants to change this scenario. Soon, with a simple command, we will have everything installed and ready to use. It will be even simpler to have Linux on Windows 10.

Microsoft quer tornar tudo mais simples

Para facilitar o processo de configuração e instalação do WSL no Windows 10 a Microsoft está a preparar algumas mudanças importantes. Este não é um processo complicado atualmente, mas obriga os utilizadores a executar alguns passos.

Assim, porque quer simplificar o processo, a Microsoft tem em testes uma novidade importante neste campo. Está por agora disponível apenas para o Programa Insiders, mas em breve deverá ser alargado a todos os utilizadores do Windows 10.

Linux chegará de forma mais rápida

A ideia é que com um simples comando, seja possível configurar o Linux e fazer também a sua instalação. Claro que o utilizador poderá escolher a sua distribuição preferida, bastando adicionar o seu nome ao comando.

wsl --install
wsl --list --online

These distributions will arrive from the Internet, in a quick and simple process. The list is also available with a command, which the user must execute to obtain it.

Finally, and after all is dealt with, the user simply chooses the Linux distribution to install on Windows 10. Again with a following command, everything will be dealt with, from preparing the WSL to the actual installation.

wsl --install kali-linux

This novelty will soon arrive at the Microsoft system and will completely change this process, both in its preparation and in the installation of Linux. This makes it even simpler a process that many refuse for fear of being complicated and difficult.
