    One of the useful additions to Fedora Remix for WSL and WLinux is that when paired with a Windows X11 client can allow for GUI application support, albeit unaccelerated.
    I had a couple distros running in full graphics mode last spring. opeSuse and Ubuntu if I recall correctly. Just had to download that weird x11 for Windoze graphics driver thingy. "xming" or whatever.

    The whole experience seemed pretty stupid, given that you could just run a vbox instance with better performance.

        Isn't it a trademark infringement, when some random guy takes money for something and calls it Fedora?
        "Fedora" and the Fedora logo are trademarks of Red Hat, Inc.

          I've got no problem with someone associated with Fedora/RedHat doing that, but it's pretty shitty to have some random guy just copy a bunch of packages and try to make money off someone else's project.

          I mean, if they were doing tons of integration work or something worthwhile then I'd be ok with it. But I assume it took them basically no effort to create.
