Installing WSL upgrade prompt

after installing wsl and vscode for my windows machine I was prompted by vs code that i was using wsl1 instead of wsl2 so should I consider upgrading to wsl 2 will it affect the coursework

Hey Nitin!

Having either wsl1 or wsl2 installed will not affect the coursework at all. If you would like to continue using wsl1 you are more than welcome to. Additionally if you are interested in reading up a little more about the differences between wsl1 and wsl2 (and may inform you more on whether you would like to upgrade to wsl2) please check out this short article as well as this longer one directly from Microsoft!

Brendan
