No idea what the general opinion on WSL2 might be, but using it feels like practicing dark magic.

All the usual "need this for work" stuff in Windows + not having to mess with things that just work when using it in Linux in WSL.

Native mounting of the respective other FS, forwarding of `localhost` to the browser running in Windows and all of that with a rather negligible footprint (brand new Elitebook 850 though).

After setting it up from scratch (~6 hrs): wow :O

Will update in a week or so.


PS: it's a new notebook I got from work, I'm still on the pure Manjaro Dell for all non-work things.
