In June 2020, we released the first NVIDIA Display Driver that enabled GPU acceleration in the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) 2 for Windows Insider Program (WIP) Preview users. At that time, it was still an early preview with a limited set of features. A year later, as we have steadily added new capabilities, we…

Hi,

First, I want to thank all of you for the work you’re doing. It has made so much possible for so many people.
