Default Windows Subsystem for Linux v2 gets real Linux kernel

This will replace the emulation done by the current WSL with "full system call compatibility possible". It will be open source and generally available this autumn ( October ).
Although this won't appeal much to the die-hard Linux users and Windows users will eschew it, there exists lots of folks who have to live in both worlds. A large number of them have reviewed the current WSL favorably, but complained about some functions not available due to the emulation. That is the reason for V2.

More details:

I wonder what they're going to do about Posix threads?
