Or manually download the .msixbundle file from GitHub.

"CRITICAL DEADLY BUG" that Deletes All Files: WSL2 As Bell Labs Engineer goes Ballistic to elevate WSL2 Linux Bug
2 projects | reddit.com/r/bashonubuntuonwindows | 6 Mar 2023
Hilarious, but DEADLY to WSL Staff at Microsoft? Normally people that report bugs are restrained, but imagine a bug that deletes all users files under your Windows Users area or under Linux home area? I suffered the same thing when using WSL2 Linux recently and found this heated bug report: "CRITICAL DEADLY BUG: WSL2/VSCODE/Docker Desktop Memory Leak clobbers WSL /home/username/* ALL files Suddenly Disappear! #9728" that accuses the WSL team of being a 5 years old bug.

It's quite easy to pull off nowadays. Although I'd suggest not using systemd because it slows down WSL 2's start up time by a lot, it's a known bug https://github.com/microsoft/WSL/issues/6765. I noticed when I opened my terminal it would hang for at least ~10 seconds very frequently.

If this doesn't apply to your system, then maybe visit https://github.com/microsoft/WSL/issues/7638, and look at comments near the bottom featuring fixes that appeared to work for at least some people, like making sure Core Isolation is enabled.

Great to see the video progress. Hoping to see more with sound support soon as well. I’d love to be able to more easily work with libraries like OpenAI Whisper under WSL once issues with soundcards in WSL  are addressed.
