Microsoft announces WSL 2

In an exciting move Microsoft announces WSL2 for Windows 10 as a successor for WSL – Windows Subsystem for Linux. WSL2 uses a real Linux kernel to be able to run native Linux executables on Windows.

The announcement mentions key features of WSL2 such as

„dramatic file system performance increases”
„you can run more Linux apps in WSL 2 such as Docker”

So probably this setup will be better suited for web development than MacOS (though not as good as the real deal Linux)
I will try my benchmark project fwshop2 with Docker on this new platform to compare to Linux and MacOS. The results for Linux and MacOS are documented in this article.
