In this build, you can natively run Bash in Windows as announced last week at Build 2016. To do this, you first need to turn on Developer Mode via Settings > Update & security > For developers. Then search for “Windows Features” and choose “Turn Windows features on or offâ€ and enable Windows Subsystem for Linux (Beta). To get Bash installed, open Command Prompt and type “bash”.
I’m really curious to find out what fans of Bash and Linux command line tools think of this after actually using it.
Dev Resources come and go.
No developer in her or his senses will burn the few remaining ships, not anymore. [MS is starting to extend a hand to those left behind].
This level of commitment is unheard of.
Should Devs leverage on MS? Humble point of view is Yes. [Just don’t invert too much time or mind share on MS specificities].
“Windows subsystem for linux” or “WiSL”, pronounced “weasel”
But other than that, now I almost look forward to receiving a win10 machine at work in about 4-5 years from now to check this out with.
