For use with Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL), Oracle this week released Oracle Linux 8.5 onto the Microsoft Store.

Oracle Linux 8 is joining the likes of Ubuntu, openSUSE, Alpine, Fedora WSL Remix, and other WSL-based offerings available through the Microsoft Store for easy deployment.

Oracle Linux 8 itself is available free from the Microsoft Store (though toward the end of the week was marked as needing to redeem a code) while Oracle separately sells its enterprise support services around their RHEL-based derivative.

Those interested in having Oracle Linux 8 on Windows via WSL can learn more via the Microsoft Store.
