    👎 Not for Windows 10, and this issue still exists.

  • BW11

    Bypass windows 11 system requirements

  • InfluxDB

    Build time-series-based applications quickly and at scale.. InfluxDB is the Time Series Platform where developers build real-time applications for analytics, IoT and cloud-native services. Easy to start, it is available in the cloud or on-premises.

  • Electron

    :electron: Build cross-platform desktop apps with JavaScript, HTML, and CSS

  • cmder

    Lovely console emulator package for Windows

    For a terminal, I'm a big fan of https://cmder.app/ - it's a customized build/packaging of ConEmu. I use it with WSL1 as a daily driver.

  • terminal

    The new Windows Terminal and the original Windows console host, all in the same place!

    https://github.com/microsoft/terminal It's their new terminal that you can use with powershell, cmd, azure cli, etc and your wsl bash

  • nushell

    A new type of shell

    This a shell rather than a terminal, but you may be interested in nushell since you can get the same experience on Windows and Linux/WSL

  • wsl-vpnkit

    Provides network connectivity to WSL 2 when blocked by VPN

    Had similar issue. wsl-vpnkit resolved it for me. Very simple instructions to get it up and running.

  • Tabby

    A terminal for a more modern age

    I'm a fan of Tabby.

  • alacritty

    A cross-platform, OpenGL terminal emulator.

    Alacritty is super fast. Some basic features (at least more than what's provided by Windows default).
