WSL 2 distros now supported on Windows Server

Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) 2 type distros are now fully supported on Windows Server 2022.

Released in May 2019, WSL 2 is a compatibility layer that allows Windows Server users to run Linux binary executables (in ELF format) natively, using virtualization technology to run an open source Linux kernel inside of a lightweight utility virtual machine (VM), without using a separate Linux distro.
