    Enabling the Windows Subsystem for Linux to include support for Wayland and X server related scenarios

    If you run Windows 11 and for whatever reason want to use a Linux GUI app, you can use WSLg to install apps through your distro and they will show up in the start menu as if you installed them on Windows. It has some limitations and might be a bit unreliable for some cases (ex. you can't use aero snap with Linux apps right now) , but it is an option in case you would like.

  • Visual Studio Code

    Visual Studio Code

    Install vscode and the Remote Development - WSL extension. This is my personal preference, as vscodes code command will be available from within your WSL distros which makes it pretty seamless to work with.

  • Appwrite

    Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support . Appwrite is an open source backend server that helps you build native iOS applications much faster with realtime APIs for authentication, databases, files storage, cloud functions and much more!
