Windows Terminal and WSL 2 tips

The Microsoft Windows Terminal is here! Fantastic development. In this video I show you both WSL 2 tips and tricks and show you how you can use the Microsoft Windows Terminal to interact with WSL 2 Virtual Machines (Ubuntu 20.04) and others. It’s so easy now to have a tabbed application that supports Powershell, Command Prompt, Azure, WSL 2, SSH, Telnet and other applications.

Windows Terminal supports a lot of customization – you can change fonts, colors, background images and a whole bunch of other options.

wsl2 is a fantastic Microsoft Windows 10 development: You can run Linux directly on Windows using the windows subsystem for linux. In this video I demonstrate ubuntu 20.04 and 18.04 using wsl2.
