Pengwin Enterprise is a Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) solution compatible with mainstream enterprise Linux distributions such as **Oracle Linux** and **Red Hat Enterprise Linux**. It is designed for enterprise users who need a secure, reliable, and fast Linux environment on their Windows machines.
Pengwin Enterprise can be customized to fit the organization's needs and leverage existing Linux infrastructure and subscriptions. Pengwin Enterprise also comes with a rich set of tools and packages to help you work productively with Linux on Windows.
Whether you are a developer, a system administrator, a data scientist, or a power user, Pengwin Enterprise can meet your needs and enhance your workflow.
Pengwin Enterprise installs itself as a menu entry in Windows Terminal. We crafted the background and the color palette for the best looking and usability in Windows Terminal. Configuring Pengwin Enterprise as your Default Profile in Windows Terminal allows greater integration with the Windows environment. Specifically, right-click a folder in File Explorer and select Open in Terminal. It will open in the chosen directory, making it easier to access all necessary files and tools from within the terminal.
Access your C:\ drive at /mnt/C automatically. Copy and paste from Visual Studio into Emacs. Open Word from zsh. Pipe ifconfig.exe output into a Python script. It is a hybrid world. Pengwin Enterprise bridges the gap between Windows and Linux.
Pengwin Enterprise is designed for custom deployments in consultation with Whitewater Foundry's international team of WSL experts.
This build provided on the Microsoft Store is built from Rocky Linux, for demonstration purposes and personal use only.
