Yup it ignores them. It relies on session manager to start it, it doesn't have an independent binary for launch.
Maybe I'll try running lightdm or something
Someone can help me with a link to download Ubuntu 18.04 file from Microsoft Store?
Here is not updated to version 18.04:
whats the point of this WSL isnt it the same as cygwin?
The link supplied by @Tito is excellent. Perhaps one aspect to add is: Neither WSL or Cygwin is very helpful if you want unix tools to work integrated in Windows. For example, various unix development tools for use in Windows development. MSYS and the now dead SUA relies on porting and compiling the tools for Windows and therefore have builtin patched adaptions. One example is the excellent Git for Windows (MSYS) or Mingw (MSYS). Ported script interpreters like Python. Perl etc will still be needed. There are lots of work put down in all these porting efforts. WSL isn't the universal feature to make all that work become redundant.
Might seem like an odd question, but anyone got any luck running gentoo on the WSL?
