Forget Ubuntu, now OpenSuse comes to Windows 10

Replace Ubuntu with openSUSE in Bash on Windows 10 and enjoy Linux

If you have been following Techworm, you will know that you can run Ubuntu Apps on Windows using Bash. Microsoft brought the fun and power of Linux to Windows 10 with Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL). This allowed the Windows 10 users to run Bash on Ubuntu on Windows 10 and enjoy Ubuntu Apps without having to install the Ubuntu distro separately.

Now your Linux experience on Windows 10 is bound to get a further refill with OpenSuse Linux distro. OpenSUSE has given the users an option to run openSUSE inside your Windows 10 installation. This way, you can run most openSUSE Apps within Windows 10 without having to install the Operating System separately like Ubuntu with Bash.
