This repo has been archived. You can continue to use the optimized Ubuntu image that is available by default in the Hyper-V Quick Create Gallery. If you are looking for an integrated Linux developer experience on Windows, we encourage you to check out WSL 2. WSL 2 lets developers run a GNU/Linux environment -- including most command-line tools, utilities, and applications -- directly on Windows, unmodified, without the overhead of a traditional virtual machine or dualboot setup. The ability to run Linux GUI apps in WSL is also on the roadmap.
