Raft is a Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) distribution manager in native C#/XAML for Windows 10 applying Fluent design principles. Raft makes managing WSL distros on your Windows 10 device easy. You have one month to use Raft WSL without restrictions and compromises. After this period, if you want to continue, you must acquire an annual subscription priced about USD 14.99. Raft is brought to you by the innovative team behind Pengwin, Pengwin Enterprise, and Fedora Remix for WSL. "Raft" is the name for Penguins swimming underwater.
