Dear all,

I would like to know if using gromacs on the Windows 10 ubuntu Linux subsystem (WLS) is supported. On WLS the gromacs package can be directly installed via the Ubuntu apt-get command. I know there are other windows-based alternatives to installing/using gromacs (ex. Cygwin), but on WLS it is straightforward, providing access to an almost native-like Linux experience.

I have noticed that Amber MD can be installed/used on WLS (see http://ambermd.org/amber_install.html). Please let me know if you’ve successfully tested this for gromacs.
