          aliotan, there's another Uservoice for AF_Unix with 12 votes. Please vote for it to help boost support. Add your use-case in the comments. They do get looked at from time to time.

            If you're getting error codes, then file an issue with detailed logs generated as described on the Github page.

              Apparently the newest Insider build 17704 allows this unadvertised capability. https://github.com/Microsoft/WSL/issues/1349#issuecomment-400936919

              If anybody is on Insiders and can get that build, can they test out what other features from Kali work now?

              Stop +1 spamming this people. Just Vote for it. That's where your +1 comes in. If you're going to comment, having something relevant to say like perhaps your use case so we can push up on the backlog.

              WSLUser commented  · 

              This is still be investigated on the backlog per @tara_raj on Twitter.

              Kali is now available in the Windows Store, which is probably what prompted a official response for this old ask. In order for Kali to be utilized to it's fullest, this feature will need to implemented. Can do quite a bit without it though surprisingly.

              WSLUser commented  · 

              Everyone needs to stop +1 this and put real use cases so the priority can be given to finish the work of implementing AF_Unix on Windows. The more use cases put, the bigger the push Microsoft will feel to complete this project.

                          "If Microsoft fears somebody could use the emulator for playing games on a PC". There are a number of games you can play directly on Windows 10 using the Xbox One digital store anyways. I don't think this is a concern. If anything, it would help bridge existing Xbox games that aren't currently available for use on Windows 10.

                            I'd like to see the Windows Console display in a UWP UI vice the win32 we currently have. We got tabs for it thanks to Sets. Now let's make it look even better.

                            WSLUser commented  · 

                            This would help bridge the gap between win32 and UWP and make the transition much easier. Please work on this asap!

                              @ernestogIT You can create a task in Task scheduler to do this. See the Uservoice "Support background tasks" under the commandline Uservoice forum.

                                I want to point out that we have very clear that WSL does not support X/GUI desktops, apps, and tools.

                                This said, we totally understand the utility of audio support in several scenarios. While this is not currently a high priority for us, it’s something we’ll definitely consider for the future.

                                If you’re interested in accessibility & screen reader support, we’ve actually exposed the contents of the Windows Console to UIA for the first time in Fall Creators Update, allowing Narrator & other screen readers to read command-line output more easily: https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/commandline/2017/10/11/whats-new-in-windows-console-in-windows-10-fall-creators-update/

                                It has always been clear that GUI isn't officially supported though hopefully that will change when the #1 Uservoice flips (this isn't it). The custom ppa hasn't worked in awhile since it's not being maintained anymore (so newer pulse audio packages can't be fixed). Pulse Audio itself technically is good in Skip-Ahead builds, leaving just the API driver support. This is another thing I hope we can see this fall.

                                There is a custom ppa created by @therealkenc hosted on Launchpad you can add to your repositories. This is the workaround until we can access the hardware via Linux drivers.

                                    Nmap and things like nmap require AF_Packet. Vote for that and cite your use-case. Remove this ask because it helps nobody. For NMAP specifically: Use the Windows version. Many other Kali tools work just fine.

Be sure you start the service created every time you kill your WSL session.
