WSL1 is a Linux userspace on top of Windows kernel. Commands and userspace
API are the same, but kernel API is different.
I got NFD working on WSL1 to some extent
https://yoursunny.com/t/2018/NFD-on-Windows-10-WSL/ .
ns-3 doesn't need special kernel functions, so it should work.

WSL2 is a Linux virtual machine, no different from VirtualBox etc.

One limitation is, neither version of WSL officially supports GUI, since
they are designed to run server type programs. Therefore, ns-3 visualizer
is unlikely to work.

Yours, Junxiao
