Although Ubuntu on Windows is still an on-going project, I think it supposed to be an open source project otherwise it will violate GPL terms.

Therefore, where is the source repository of this "subsystem" on Win10? I mean, the "bootloader", kernel and especially the init(1) process?

I'm hoping it's as open as possible so that anyone can contribute to it. Thanks.


It is currently not an open source project as stated in the GitHub repo for Bash on Windows.

You can vote for making it open source by going to the Windows Developer Feedback site. Hopefully Microsoft will listen to what the community is asking for.
