Arch Linux for WSL is now Available in the Microsoft Store

Fans of the Windows 10 Subsystem for Linux (WSL) will be happy to learn that the Arch Linux distribution is now available from the Microsoft Store.


If you try this do keep an eye on the extra repo that has been included,

The Arch Linux distribution on the Microsoft Store is not an authorized version. An Arch Linux team member has also pointed out that the distribution on the Microsoft Store added an unknown repository to the pacman.conf file, so if you install packages through it, it is not known if they have been tampered with.

An don't you just love the last few words of the article,

You never know, you may like it so much you create your own dedicated Linux PC.
