On Windows 10, you can now download two additional Linux distributions, including Debian and Kali. With these new additions, the Microsoft Store now has a total of five Linux environments that you can run simultaneously on your device.
Previously, Microsoft introduced a new subsystem for Windows 10 to give developers and advanced users the ability to run native Linux tools without the need of a virtual machine or installing a different operating system.
Starting with the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, you no longer need to enable “Developer Mode” on your computer to run Linux distributions. However, you still need to install the Windows Subsystem for Linux using the “Turn Windows features on or off” settings to get any Linux distro running to prevent error 0x8007007e.
