Microsoft recently announced that Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSDL) will be able to run Linux GUI apps. BleepingComputer already tested it.

Windows 10 preview builds can now run Linux apps directly on the Windows 10 desktop using the new Windows Subsystem for Linux GUI. In this article, we go hands on with the new WSLg feature to demonstrate the types of graphical Linux apps you can now run.
