    I installed win-kex 2.0 for Kali WSL2; it's changelog says that now it can be run as root, but if I run

    sudo su
    kex

    I get this error:
    unable to connect to socket. (10061)

    It work if I run it with my non-root user

    Yes, I watched that video on Youtube. Looked quite impressive, actually. I am looking forward to trying this out, but I think I will wait until they finish testing and release it for real.

    I don't understand why they don't add any ext support directly into Windows instead of using this stuff. I mean, even a read-only option would be nice.
