open suse linux on windows 10

Short Bytes: Sr. Product Manager SUSE Linux Enterprise SUSE, Hannes Kühnemund, has written a blog post and described how to run openSUSE Leap 42.2 and SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12 SP2 on Windows 10. Now, by running simple commands, the users can install SUSE Linux distributions in Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL). The company has also prepared a detailed blog post and described the whole procedure. For those who don’t know, by default, Microsoft enabled Ubuntu within WSL.

In its Anniversary Update, Microsoft launched Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL). This allowed the Windows 10 users to run Bash on Ubuntu on Windows 10. The upcoming Creators Update will improve this experience. But, the openSUSE developers don’t agree with Microsoft’s choice.

Now, openSUSE has given the users an option to run openSUSE inside your Windows 10 installation. This way, you can run most openSUSE tools within Windows 10.
