At Build 2017 in May, Microsoft announced that it’s bringing Ubuntu, SUSE Linux, and Fedora to the Windows Store for Windows 10 PCs. Today, SUSE has released the SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12 and openSUSE Leap 42 on the Windows Store for Windows 10. Users can now download both of them from the Windows Store and run them on their Windows 10 PCs if they are running one of the latest Insider previews, thanks to the new Windows Subsystem for Linux in Windows 10. These will run in a sandboxed environment alongside Windows 10, but they will still have all the capabilities that you usually get on a full-blown installation.

This is just the beginning of more to come, as Microsoft is also bringing Ubuntu to Windows Store in the near-future. The Windows Subsystem for Linux is also advancing quite rapidly, as Microsoft has been adding a lot of new capabilities and features to the system recently in the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update Insider previews.

openSUSE Leap 42, and SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12 are available from the Windows Store below. Once again, you will need to be running the latest Insider builds to be able to download them.
