@ParamSiddharth mainly because of the file system problems that exist. I constantly need to manually update the file tree in VSCode.
I already need to use WSL 1 because that’s actually faster than WSL2’s file system access.
WSL2’s with an xserver brings a whole lot more of problems than solutions.
Constantly permission problems because sometimes you access things from the windows side and sometimes from wsl.
It crashes or hangs also a lot with nodeJS stuff so I manually have to restart wsl.
Literally more annoying than just rebooting into a proper Linux with an nvme.

IntrusionCM8807336dWhy... Do you want to run an XServer in an environment which is so not made for this?
You know that WSL 2 is not a generic virtualization stack?
@IntrusionCM Yeah I know. It’s just that I didn’t want to install an Linux for this one electron project I have which I maybe work a day or two in the year on it.
And so far it was a better compromise than installing Linux as virtual Maschine.
And I have zero patience installing development stuff on windows since this was purely for gaming and video editing.
But now I’ll just dual boot since I don’t switch sporadically between development and gaming anymore.
SortOfTested24389336dSomething about consistently saying that for years now. #NotPrescient
TonyLeTigre79336dStarted with Linux,
Had to use WSL at my corpo job (They had a Windows only policy) and behind a proxy on top of that
Got laid off recently and my first thought was omg i can finally go back to my i3 setup
