It will only work on 1903 and later. It's not even available to Insiders yet I don't think. I'm stuck on 1709 so I still have many of the early bugs in WSL

I suspect possibly something more akin to more telemetry and invasion but now with linux. I'll wait a while and see what news comes out of this. *taps fingers on desk*
It's for developers. Almost nobody else is going to benefit from this. WSL makes development on Windows somewhat tolerable, especially if you rely on open source tools that are developed by people who don't even own a Windows machine. These tools often have an entire backlog of Windows-specific bugs, and the performance is somewhere between bad and abysmal.
