'While users have long been able to run Linux GUI
apps on Windows by
installing a separate X Server, this marks the first time that native
support is available through the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL).
Audio support and hardware acceleration are also provided, seemingly
enabling a limitless set of use cases for those wishing to live the
dual OS life. The change is identified in the recent preview build
release along with a more in-depth discussion of the graphical
subsystem now called WSLg.'

Why does Microsoft need to do this? Is Windows that short of native GUI
apps that they have to resort to supporting Linux ones now?
After all, it is not usual for the dominant market player to pay much
attention to the also-rans. It is they who have to play catch-up.
