  1. Alternatives to using Windows Store to install Linux distro on WSL


    I just wanted to ask what alternatives there are to using the Windows 10 to install Linux distros on WSL.


    Also, it seems like Ubuntu 19 isn't available for the WSL. Is there a chance that we'll be able to install it when WSL2 is released? And I'd like to get the latest non-LTS version if possible (though it's alright if it's not possible too).

    :)
