Develop with the best of both worlds
The freedom of Ubuntu
Run your choice of Linux text editors, including vim, emacs, and nano. Install applications, compilers and libraries from the Ubuntu repository, securely maintained by Canonical.
Highly performant AI/ML
Ubuntu is the target platform for all major open source AI/ML frameworks. NVIDIA Data Science Stack lets you maximise the performance of your Data Science and Machine Learning projects on top of native Windows NVIDIA drivers.
Fully flexible web applications
Build, test, and deploy Kubernetes clusters on Windows. Develop in WSL using native Windows IDEs including VS Code and IntelliJ. Use containers to improve your workflow and benefit from full NodeJS and Ruby support.
Ideal for cross-platform development
Create and test your CI/CD pipelines locally on an Ubuntu WSL instance. When ready, publish to a cloud production environment running Ubuntu VMs. Develop and test graphical Linux applications using WSLg and development frameworks like Flutter or React Native.
Critical tools for security specialists
Leverage Linux security tools to test and harden your network. Achieve the same first-class, out-of-the-box, compliant security that is synonymous with Ubuntu.
Mixed IT infrastructure management
From the same workstation, manage mixed Linux and Windows infrastructure both on-prem and across public clouds.
