WSL2 and Linuxbrew


I was recently trying to set up WSL2 (Windows subsytem for Linux) to work on a project at work that only had MacOS instructions.

All the setup instructions were with Homebrew and I didn't want to go find the equivalent name on Ubuntu package manager.

That's when I remembered about linuxbrew - Homebrew on Linux!

Now, I could use the same installation commands to get set up!

brew install node

And also install my favorite cat clone that I use extensively on my personal Mac - bat

brew install bat

Note that --cask commands won't work on linuxbrew.
