The list of Linux distributions that can be run via the Windows Subsystem for Linux within Windows 10 is still fairly straightforward, but it does contain some of the more well-known names that WSL officially support under Windows 10. In addition to Debian, Ubuntu and various variants of SUSE Linux, Kali Linux, which is designed for security and penetration tests, has also introduced new improvements for WSL 2 under Windows 10 in parallel to the currently published version 2020.3 of the Linux distribution.

Win-KeX is the name of a new graphical user interface that was specially developed for Windows 10 and, once set up, provides a classic XFCE desktop in window mode. In order to get this, Kali Linux, after it has been downloaded from the Microsoft Store and installed, must first be brought up to date and then the “kali-win-kex” package must be installed using the apt package manager. A small VNC server then runs within the WSL 2 instance, which then calls the Kali Linux XFCE desktop.
