Microsoft brought open source Linux to closed walls of Windows 10 with the help of WSL, i.e., Windows Subsystem for Linux. This achievement was made possible by partnering with Canonical. As a result, the developers and regular users were able to run Bash on Ubuntu on Windows 10 natively.

Now, at Build 2017, Microsoft has revealed its plans to collaborate with Fedora and SUSE to bring their Linux distributions to WSL.

Just like I earlier reported the arrival of Ubuntu on Windows Store, Fedora and openSUSE will make an appearance in Windows Store pretty soon. This new expansion will allow interested developers to download and install Linux tools quickly on their Windows 10 system.

It’s worth noting that developers will be able to run all these Linux distributions inside of Windows 10. Yeah, Ubuntu, Fedora, and openSUSE side-by-side in Windows 10.

It’s now clear that Microsoft and open source leaders like Canonical, Fedora, and SUSE are ready to work together, allowing the developers to stay on Windows platform and still use Linux tools. On the other hand, this also makes things for Windows developers more exciting.

Did you find the arrival of Fedora and openSUSE on Windows Store exciting? Don’t forget to share your views.
