First, I love WSL (Windows Subsystem for Linux)! It’s a great addition to Windows 10, and everyone should learn how to use it.
To get started, follow the instructions on how to get your WSL 1 Linux Distro installed. And, begin with installing Ubuntu 18.04.
Now, get Docker Desktop (), which can be installed in Windows 10 RTM Build 18363 with WSL 1.
One of the key benefits around WSL 2 is that your Docker containers will run natively rather than through a VM. That’s a pretty big deal in terms of performance and production-readiness. That Docker capability is currently in preview, but I’d expect it to make its way to production sooner than later.
