I know some people were able to get CentOS 6/7 running in WSL (Windows Subsystem for Linux) with a few third party github utilities but those seem to be broken since the 1806 update. It seems Fedora is working to get their distro in the Microsoft Store. Any plans for CentOS?

googled... nothing found... are there any (in)official news for this topic?

I didn't find anything either. Unsuccessful searches on Google

There are no current plans that I am aware of to produce a WSL distro for CentOS.
CentOS 5 died in March 2017 - migrate NOW!
CentOS 6 goes EOL sooner rather than later, get upgrading!

that's very disappointing. I enjoyed running centos under wsl.
Sad to see RedHat and Centos are slowly falling behind the times.

Na. Embrace the penguin! Leave the (extremely complex world) of Windows behind. Why virtualise what is (frankly clearly) a simpler, clear tech?
