Hi,

I love the idea of WSL2, running a Linux Subsystem on my Windows System. In my opinion it combines literally the best of both worlds. 

The only thing I need to remove my third party virtualization software is a usb passthrough. This is the only thing. According to this github feature request, I am not the only one.

Does anyone know whether there is something like this planned for the future?

Greetings,

Cedric
