The dev.to  article shared how to get WSL runnnig using a non-bash terminal. I haven't looked into WSL in a while, but I was really excited back when I heard it was coming. Bash is good for me.
Originally, I thought we'd be able to use 'real' linux docker in the subsystem and then manage it from windows. It seems like that is not the use case they are going after per the FAQ . Instead, they seem to want to support building rails apps locally? Maybe  is an example of what they want to support? It seems pretty complicated though.
I'm confused on how I should consider using WSL since full networking support does not seem to be in their design goals. Maybe we'll get a reply to my github comment [13.1].
