    Installation instructions for Arch Linux in WSL2

    I have seen a few comments about a walkthrough on the process, so I figure I'd throw mine in here. I just wrote it up as a readme but I have run through this process probably 4 times now.

    I had a decent WSL1 environment going, with vcxsrv + gome (ubuntu at the time.) Things mostly worked, but filesystem speeds were atrocious, and there were small gotchas that made the experience just miserable.

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.
