Popular application virtualization software for Linux has finally made it’s way to Windows 10 devices. The software allows Linux users to create a sandbox environment to test applications that might harm the computer.
The software has finally made it to Windows devices but there’s a catch. To make sure the software works perfectly, users will need to enable Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL). Also, users will need to install a Win32 X11 Server to make sure it works perfectly.

However, since the software relies completely on WSL, some of the functions like security sandboxing is not available. That said, the software can work on Windows and we do hope the developers work out a way to support it natively instead of using WSL.
