About using WSL and Ubuntu for Windows

If you attempt to use Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) or Ubuntu for Windows to follow Linux instructions, you will get a systemd error telling you System has not been booted with systemd as init system (PID 1). Can't operate. Do not fret. Just use Docker.

systemd is a suite of basic building blocks for a Linux system. For more information about its function, see System and Service Manager. This becomes an issue due to the lack of support for Linux workflows on WSL. But, you can test the instructions listed in Systemd support is now available in WSL!.
