Exploring the Windows Subsystem for Linux, we have looked at the architectural overview and deep dived into the Pico Processes. In this video we focus our attention on the way the subsystem redirects system calls. Stephen Hufnagel will explain how system calls work in general on Windows and Linux, then dive into the mechanics of WSL’s translation. He’ll discuss system calls which are easily mapped, as well as some which are a little more difficult. The more I get to dive into this awesome technology the more impressed I become with the amount of engineering effort that went into the Windows Subsystem for Linux. Enjoy!
