If you8217re like me you may find yourself running Windows for a variety of reasons from work to gaming. Sure you could run Fedora in a virtual machine or as a container but those don8217t blend into a common windows experience as easily as the Windows Subsystem for Linux WSL. Using Fedora via WSL will let you blend the two environments together for a fantastic development environment.
There are a few basics you8217ll need in order to make this all work. You should be running Windows 10 and have WSL2 installed already. If not check out the Microsoft documentation for instructions and come back here when you8217re finished. Microsoft recommends setting wsl2 as the distro default for simplicity. This guide assumes you8217ve done that.
Next you8217re going to need some means of unpacking xz compressed files. You can do this with another WSL-based distribution or use 7zip.
