Dustin Kirkland of Canonical writes about one of Windows 10’s recent feature additions, the ability to run Ubuntu natively. This was announced at Build 2016, a recent Microsoft conference. Dustin confirms, “An Ubuntu user space and bash shell, running natively in a Windows 10 cmd.exe console!” Dustin gives a short tutorial on how to do it, answers some questions that might come up, and ends by stating, “From Microsoft’s perspective, a variety of surveys and user studies have pointed to bash and Linux tools – very specifically, Ubuntu – be available in Windows, and without resource-heavy full virtualization.”
