Known issues

There are some known overarching issues that affect a broad range of programs:

  • Disk IO perf is relatively slow. If you run disk-intensive operations (e.g. restoring a large Git repo and/or projects with lots of node modules / Ruby Gems), you'll likely see slower performance than on native Ubuntu. The team are aware of this issue and are working to remedy in future OS releases.
  • Editing Linux files in Windows apps results in data corruption. See blog post.
  • Node.js Network Interface (#468 FIXED IN INSIDER)
  • NETLINK and ICMP (#69 FIXED IN INSIDER)
  • INOTIFY filewatching (#216 FIXED IN INSIDER)
  • Shared Memory support (required by Postgres, etc.) (#61 FIXED IN INSIDER)

See WSL Release Notes for more details of specific issued fixed, and syscalls added

Contributing

Yes, please. Probably need screenshots or console output to verify that it's working as expected.
