We’re excited to announce that you can now download & install openSUSE Leap 42 and SLES 12 via the Windows Store RIGHT NOW!

**Important Note:**** You will need to be running **any Windows 10 Insider build >= #16215 and have the WSL optional component enabled.

We’ve been excitedly waiting for this moment ever since we announced that you’d be able to install and run multiple distro’s side-by-side on WSL and follows-on from our announcement last week that Ubuntu is now available for download from the Windows Store.

This announcement finally delivers on our commitment that, one day, we’d be able to run more than one distro on WSL … alongside your favorite Windows tools. That day is today! As we’ve always said … WSL was built to be distro-agnostic; this is the proof!

Our sincerest thanks to the great team at SUSE for all their hard work and patience, and congratulations on your new delivery! We look forward to working with you to grow the community of users that run openSUSE and SLES on WSL.

Now, go get your green on 😁

Rich & the WSL team.

P.S: For those of you wondering where Fedora is – the Fedora team are wrapping-up & testing their package; It’ll be in the store soon!
