I have not tried it, but there is a tool which will let you switch to
any other userspace published on the Docker Hub (which would include
Fedora and CentOS):
https://github.com/RoliSoft/WSL-Distribution-Switcher


I imagine (but have no actual idea) that the next evolution of this
will simply be making Linux-based Docker containers work (without using
hyperv as Docker does now).
