WSL 2 is due for general release on May 28th. Whilst I know it’s been available for a while with insider builds. Do we know if the roots guide for Windows setup needs updating for WSL 2? I am seeing conflicting reports whether Virtualbox works with WSL 2.
Some 3rd party applications cannot work when Hyper-V is in use, which means they will not be able to run when WSL 2 is enabled, such as VMware and VirtualBox. However, recently both VirtualBox and VMware have released versions that support Hyper-V and WSL2! You can learn more about VirtualBox’s changes here and VMware’s changes here.
- I followed the VirtualBox link and found no mention of WSL 2 at all.
I’ve recently had to start using Windows at work instead of OSX, and I am relatively new to the Windows setup. It’s working, just slow in areas, working on it and will report back.
