Bash on Ubuntu on Windows

| linux | windows | ubuntu |

I just opened up a command prompt on Windows 10, typed in bash, and watched as Ubuntu was installed on my computer.

I never, in 1 million years, thought that I would ever live to see the day that this happened. With each passing announcement, upgrade, release, and blog post Microsoft is proving itself to be an innovative company once again. I have never been more excited about Windows than I am right now.

  1. This completely changes most of the things I said in this post.
  2. I have been saying for a while that I predict that the next version of Windows Server will basically be a Linux Distro. I think we are one step closer to making this a reality, and I think that this changes everything.
  3. I am so excited to see what will happen in the future with this partnership.
You can read more details here. My mind is too blown to say anything else about this right now.
