alwsl Project Lets You Install Arch Linux in the Windows Subsystem for Linux

If you have no idea what we’ve just said, we’d like to inform you first that the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) is a new Windows 10 feature that lets you run native Linux command-line tools directly on the Windows operating system. For example, Canonical and Microsoft brought Bash on Ubuntu on Windows using the new WSL functionality. And now, the alwsl project, which is developed by a group of German developers that call themselves “Turbo Developers,” offers a .bat file that you can use to install the famous and powerful Arch Linux distribution on the WSL (Windows Subsystem for Linux) host.
