I've been using WSL2 on and off for some time now, going so far as to even do my work in it some days. It's ... fine. It's good that I can use all the same tools on my gaming desktop when I wanna code but ...

Ok, so, WSL2 is great in concept right but it's held back by Windows 10. That's right, the worst part about Linux on Windows is Windows. Everything from filesystem performance to network performance and general jankyness is so much worse in Windows 10 than it is on my Linux box.
