Windows Subsystem for Linux on Surface Go

I blogged a while back about how easy it is to install and use the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) on your PC. Today I thought I’d install it on my little Surface Go. I had a spare 15 minutes and I figured that was all the time it would take. I was right.I was very quickly installing the standard applications. I was worried that enabling the WSL and installing the Ubunto operating system would use up a lot of precious hard drive space but this turns out not to be the case. I’ve got the system running and I only seem to have lost a few hundred megabytes of storage.

Just one more reason why the Surface Go is an awesome machine.
