Talk:Building on Ubuntu Virtual Machine
I'm not sure if getting a Gui octave for Octave developent on WSL2 is the main purpose of this wiki, If getting an octave with GUI on WSL2, for scientific USE is at another place please direct me there.
Update (5-5-2022) : WSL2 on windows 10, seems to be installing UBUNTU by default(?!).
From 04/28/2022 , this is for Windows 11 Build 22000 or later.
BUT from  : "Windows 10 now lets you run Linux GUI apps (X11 and Wayland) without using a virtual machine after Microsoft added GUI support to the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL)." So : No need for Virtual box anymore(?!) , for either win[10|11]?
Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 21364, is a must for WSLg install? It's a no go for bellow?
Edition Windows 10 Home Version 21H2 Installed on 29/12/2021 OS build 19044.1645 Serial number MP21S3.. Experience Windows Feature Experience Pack 120.2212.4170.0
Seems a good idea to
PowerShell> wsl --update Default Distribution: Ubuntu-20.04 Default Version: 2 Windows Subsystem for Linux was last updated on 5/5/2022 The Windows Subsystem for Linux kernel can be manually updated with 'wsl --update', but automatic updates cannot occur due to your system settings. To receive automatic kernel updates, please enable the Windows Update setting: 'Receive updates for other Microsoft products when you update Windows'. For more information please visit https://aka.ms/wsl2kernel. Kernel version: 5.10.16
A couple of safety points, do one need to before exiting ?
and similar on WSL2 side to exit with
win10> wsl --terminate, -t <Distro>
