GWSL is an XServer that lets you easily run graphical Linux apps on Windows 10 . . . AND it lets you run graphical applications located on remote Linux machines on Window 10 . . . AND it lets you manage these apps graphically, create Windows shortcuts for them, customize these shortcuts, and even manage/configure WSL distros! All at the click of a button! No memorization of commands necessary! Easy!!! GWSL automates the process of running X on top of WSL and over SSH. Basically, it does a lot of stuff so you don’t have to! 😊 F.A.Q. Does this provide Linux by itself? No, WSL must be enabled and installed. Distros must be installed through WSL. Please remember that I have spent many, many hours making this free for everyone. If something goes wrong, please contact me using the information below. Otherwise, I cannot help and the program will not get better. Please also consider making a small donation as alternatives are often pricey. Happy Summer, Paul
