  • Hello People. This is basically a combination of batch scripts made by me to make WSL less daunting for people who do not want to do Powershell things and introduce MANY more people to Linux [and make existing dual boot Linux users just stick to Windows w/o the ugly GRUB].

    Disclaimer: Only you know what you're doing. I have tested everything on me and my friend's PC and it seems to work fine. If your PC catches fire or starts an apocalypse it's not my fault. So yeah be careful about what you're doing.

    Things the scripts can do:
    1) Enable WSL 2 in any Windows 10 2004 computer. [NEW: Older versions of windows 10 are now supported.]
    2) Download all the available distros with a couple key presses.
    3) Automatically detects the downloaded distro and installs it without any user input.


    Downloads are attached in the thread and instructions are given in the zip file.

    How to know which zip to download (1 or 2) [Don't Skip]:
    1) Go to the start menu.
    2) Type "Run" and press enter
    3) Then type there "winver" and press enter.
    4) If you see 2004 there, ONLY THEN are you able to download the WSL-2 zip. Otherwise update your Windows or use the WSL-1 zip.

    Note to self: Things to do in the future--
    1) Make a GUI of sorts.
    2) Anything else the people want.

    Not going to force you or anything, but I would appreciate if you pressed the Thanks button after benefiting from my zip (I see 78 downloads but only 2 thanks...)

    Just have to. Say thanks had this opFeat installed since maybe it was first available in the list and never researched how. To. Use it or. What it really did. Just gotta find out if this will run fine on my surface too (anything except liveOS off usb will work and causes windows to eff up despite grub/4win/stock/grub if it works excites to use kali on there properly}

    You're very welcome but I would be happy if the thanks button was pressed ;) Also, it should work fine on any Windows 10 computer [remember I am using a Haswell computer and it still works]. I also have Kali working but it does not support Monitor Mode and Packet Injection just yet [Microsoft does not want to implement this feature due to security concerns]. You can also get a GUI up and running with ONLY kali using Win-Kex [look it up]

    Thanks but any chance of getting clean links that don't require allowing JavaScript before i can access them ?
    It's blocked by my browser security and even if i allow it ,the download link gets blocked by Eset.
    Doesn't anyone vet the links that get posted in the forum here ?
    There's no need for a download link to be like that.
