Re: STMANI3 - A tool for stereo alignment #workFlow #alignment


I don't currently own a Win 10 computer but I am interested to know
more about running a Linux application with Win 10.
First thing I need to point out is that I have not used this feature
myself. I work all day on Linux servers and I have Macs, so the only
thing I need to do with my old Windows laptop is to run Windows.

Also important to know -- right now only Linux command line programs
are supported. But support for Linux GUI apps is on the horizon.

Does it just run natively or must Linux also be installed and it
runs it virtually.
First off, you have to install a Linux. You take your pick from a
number of supported distributions.

- Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
- openSUSE Leap 15.1
- SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12 SP5
- SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 15 SP1
- Kali Linux
- Debian GNU/Linux
- Fedora Remix for WSL
- Pengwin
- Pengwin Enterprise
- Alpine WSL

It looks pretty easy to do:

As for the native/emulation question, Wikipedia says...

"Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) is a compatibility layer for
running Linux binary executables (in ELF format) natively on Windows
10 and Windows Server 2019."

That's what little I know about this new feature (and I really don't
know that, having not done it myself).
