Is Ubuntu subsystem for Linux any good? I'm still unable to have a stable Linux install so I thought I would use it because I'm just so used to Linux.

    No, not really.

    Windows subsystem for Linux, you mean
    Yes, it's decent. Terrible IO performance, but otherwise, works as advertised.

    If you're having trouble with hardware on Linux then try going for a well supported distro like Ubuntu and do whatever extra crap you want in a container/VM.

    I like the Linux Subsystem, but as @RememberMe said, VM's is also a possibility 😊

    No, not for anything other than just playing around with the terminal, for which there are many other emulator tools. Its horribly inefficient for anything big.

    It's pretty damn stable for the python maintenance I have to do. The most complex thing I do is run an automated WebKit engine in WSL.

    Why? Would you elaborate?

    @trippyturtle wsl isn't Linux. It's just a bunch of libraries that translate a Linux command into something windows is able to do. The added layer makes it slow
