Never thought I'd see news like this in my feeds...

Kali Linux for Windows 10 now available in Microsoft Store [betanews.com]
Today, yet another Linux distribution comes to the Microsoft Store for Windows 10, joining such favorites as SUSE and Ubuntu. While not as popular as those two, Kali Linux is still an important distro, as it focuses on security and penetration testing.


I wonder if this would work in a VM... I don't allow Win10 on any of my hardware as the primary OS.

If you are going to run it in a VM you should probably use a normal download of Kali Linux.

That's what I thought. VMs inside of VMs could get messy.

Still interesting that this is available in the MS Store...
