Recently, Microsoft surprised the users and developer community when it formally announced the launch of Linux distributions to meet developers who need the system to work. And have since come up with renowned distros such as SUSE Linux Enterprise Server, openSUSE Leap, and last, Ubuntu.
However, the related news apparently will not be limited only to developers and the biggest proof of this is the beginning of compatibility between the Hyper-V Manager for the installation of Linux virtual machines.
Through Hyper-V Manager, users will be able to benefit from the compatibility offered and install both the LTS (highest support) version and the latest version released by Canonical, thus generating a complete virtual machine in the system.
It should be noted that in order to perform the use, the user must have Hyper-V enabled (if it is not, it is available for activation in the Windows features) and will require the necessary space to download and install the desired system.
To create the new virtual machine, just right click on the name of your PC below “Hyper-V Manager” and then “Quick Create”. Once this is done, the screen will be displayed to choose which machine can be created, at least for now, limited to Ubuntu 18.04.02 LTS and 19.04.
