@5, not really. Cygwin is a port of most Linux applications (really, nearly all of the super major ones) to windows. For example, with Cygwin you can run an X Windows Environment, compile programs, and use other apps like PHP and Ruby (as well as some other apps that aren't natively compiled for windows normally). WSL is a totally different environment to Cygwin. It's more of a compatibility/emulation layer on top of Windows that tries to emulate Linux as best it can, like Wine tries to emulate Windows as best it can.t WSL, unlike Cygwin, cannot run GUI applications, full DEs, etc., and its extremely easy to break (just update it with the package manager and it goes to shit). I really don't see the advantage to WSL, other than Microsoft, once again, reinventing the wheel and trying to make something that was already made; in other words, they're trying to make a clone of Cygwin. While I like the idea, Linux is simply not designed to run in or on windows, just like Windows is not designed to run in or on Linux. The two systems are as incomparable as apples and oranges, really. They use totally different executable formats, have completely different applications and kernels, one is open source and the other is not, one is more popular than the other... you get my point. I'll go for cygwin any day over WSL; while Cygwin uses shared memory and can run into problems when it runs into stack/heap allocation issues, that problem is easy to fix (just reboot). On the other hand, WSL breaking is... not so easy to fix.
