As part of the Microsoft Build 2021 conference, the software giant did not make any loud announcements regarding Windows 10. This is due to the fact that a separate event is devoted to the operating system, which is expected to be held in the next few weeks. However, it was officially announced that full support for Linux applications with a graphical interface in Windows 10 will be available to all users later this year.
The preliminary version of support for the Linux graphical application application is implemented via Windows Subsystem for Linux subsystem. It has become available to participants of the preliminary estimate program last month. Due to her users can run your preferred tools, utilities and applications for Linux directly in Windows 10. Support for launching applications with a graphical interface will make more comfortable interoperability with different software products, since users will not need to configure the virtual machine to interact with Linux- Applications.
And although during the announcement it was said that support for Linux applications with a graphical interface has become publicly available, in fact it is not quite so. Currently, it is present only in Windows 10 test assemblies, which are used by the participants of the Insider program. According to available data, simple users of Windows 10 will have the ability to run applications for Linux with a graphical interface only after installing the next functional update of the software platform, the launch of which should take place in the fall of this year.
