This is a fairly big news for folks who have to rely on software suite from both Windows and Linux. Now if WSL2 finally implement good GPU compute support, it will attract quite a lot of developers and researchers in switching to Windows platform.

I would really like them to bake in a GUI, not just a terminal. I could avoid having to setup hyperv or vmware if i could easily fire up a WSL GUI.
