Microsoft added Systemd support to WSL

Microsoft announced the possibility of using the system manager Systemdd In Linux-rushes designed to launch Windows using WSL subsystem. Systemd support made it possible to reduce distribution requirements and bring closer to the WSL environment to the situation of starting distributions on top of ordinary equipment.

Previously, for working in WSL, the distributions were supposed to use the initialization processor provided by Microsoft, launched for PID 1 and ensures the conflict of infrastructure to organize the interaction between Linux and Windows. Now instead of a handler the standard Systemd can be used.
