TCMD - Linux Interoperability Edition might be a better title, since that's how Microsoft describes it and "interoperability" describes the intended functionality a lot better than "access".
I had never heard of "backronyms".Oooh - a backronym!

That's my point -- MS claims they're only doing character-based, not GUI. But the screenshot is me running Lxde under WSL and the link is the details on how to do that.That makes little sense. Linux GUI runs in an X server, WSL would be a regular client like anybody else, and there's enough X servers for Windows to support your needs.
Nah ... at this point it's really just a bit of joking. I could have just posted "Here's a link on how to run an LDE under WSL" instead of a screenshot of "unfortunately it's not possible to do this" showing it being done.I wonder if this is some kind of challenge to run X server under WSL itself, or just inability to look around for something better?
You're ignoring the fact that WSL 1 is not Linux--it is an API that converts calls to the Linux kernel to equivalent Windows system calls. The earliest versions of WSL did not support calls to Windows' graphics drivers. WSL 2 is a full-blown Linux kernel. Since that is still in Windows Preview, JPSoft is waiting.Time and again, running desktop apps and providing graphical environment are two separate tasks in Linux.
You can run desktop apps in WSL right now, if you provide an adequate X server on Windows side.
