Windows Subsystem for Linux

Does anyone know if there is a way to install LinuxCNC on a Windows 10 computer using Windows Subsystem for Linux? Any help with this would be great. I have to run it from my work laptop, and would hate to have to set up a dual boot situation. I've already read that a virtual machine would not work so this would be the next best option.

What about using something like this to convert windows into a RTOS?

Yes, in professional world you can have rt-windows since many years. Just insert more coins. And linuxcnc is based on "his" linux-rt api.

It might be "possible" but likely isn't practical.

I know what you want to do, my CNC table runs windows 10 using the Linux subsystem connecting to a single board computer running Debian controlling my CNC Plasma Table. Motion control using servos is the only thing I can seem to think realtime has to do with this situation besides being able to talk to the servo encoders & allow you to know where the torch is at on the screen. Mach 3 did all of this besides talking to servo encoders. Yea Mach 3 might not be as good only in certain situations. I've ran Mach3 for 6 years never a single hiccup, but windows 10 going universal is where it's at. You will never sell a Linux based cnc machine to a die-hard windows user with the windows 10 subsystem for Linux It keeps that market open for the people that either old and doesn't want to learn a new OS or a different kernel but the Linux product will sell even more.

This is my take on the OP question.
I think the OP wants to Linuxcnc locally using the Linux subsystem on the windows machine.
What you are suggesting displaying the Linuxcnc GUI from a remote machine on a local machine.

A dual boot is the simpler the way as it appears the OP has only a single machine.
