WSL is MSFT's attempt to "enclose" Linux entirely within Windows. This is MSFT's only option due to Linux's GPL v2 license. But, to be frank, WSL is the worst of both worlds - Linux, but constrained by the arbitrary limitations of Windows. Yes, MSFT trying to control the platform.
If you want to use Linux... why not just use Linux? There's literally nothing standing in your way. Using WSL is voluntarily making yourself a pawn for MSFT's proprietary interests.
If Microsoft really "loves" Linux, like its PR team shouts (at least in the US, but not elsewhere), why don't they make Linux better (rather than "how Linux integrates with proprietary Windows technologies")?
The answer is simple: they don't want people adopting Linux. They want them stuck on Windows.
Microsoft "loves" Linux the way a tapeworm loves a healthy gut.
