As I stated in a previous rant, I was finally able to run a linux desktop enviroment in the wsl in my laptop. Configuring it has been my adiction, and since then, I've put my projects aside to customize it. Here are the results.

Unfortunately I can't make i3gaps work, but this is fine too.

    @busuu lol. i3 is a tiling window manage for linux. It's best features are it's simplicity that lets you do everything without moving your hands out of the keyboard. It's great for a programmer's workflow, as you can see in this image:

    @busuu becouse it is running on ubuntu on the windows subsystem for windows: a new feature that has been on windows that lets you run bash on windows in a kind of simulated linux enviroment (llinux calls are sort of translated for the windows kernel to excecute them). I'm running i3 on linux on windows. It's great for situations in which you can't install linux, but want to keep using a linux development enviroment.

    Love the colors but the windows' taskbar feels awkward.

    Would be interesting to see how you did it, all I could get to run that isnt inside the terminal was via hacky windows xserver.

    @JoshBent @nikola1402 FUCK! I wrote a detailed explanation of EACH FUCKING STEP I MADE TO MAKE THIS WORK. I clicked "ADD COMMENT" and *poof* it's gone. That comment is lost...

    If you guys want, I can make a rant explaining it.

    Thanks for the attempt though, we share your pain..

    @CozyPlanes I can't remember where I downloaded it from, but here's a link with it and similar wallpapers too. It's from a YouTube channel called Kurzgesagt. They do educational videos on technology and physics with a good focus on design on the graphics they use.
