Bash coming to Windows (Officially)
I thought it was an april Fools joke at first. Nope.

Ubuntu and Microsoft are in bed.

Here, let’s break it down slowly…

Quote:1. Windows 10 users
2. Can open the Windows Start menu
3. And type “bash” [enter]
4. Which opens a cmd.exe console
5. Running Ubuntu’s /bin/bash
6. With full access to all of Ubuntu user space
7. Yes, that means apt, ssh, rsync, find, grep, awk, said, sort, xargs, md5sum, gpg, curl, wget, apache, mysql, python, perl, ruby, php, gcc, tar, vim, emacs, diff, patch…
8. And most of the tens of thousands binary packages available in the Ubuntu archives!

RE: Bash coming to Windows (Officially)
This is cool, but I'm not going to get excited until microsoft fixes the other issues with their kernel, first, they need to support more than fudgeing 3 filesystems, its 2016, come out of the dark ages. Second, they need to seriously trim down their OS, there is no reason it should be >8gb. Of course with bash support, wee may get proper display servers, like wayland, or (dare I say it) even X11, and have /good/ window managers that don't work against you. It's exciting that there is a proper package manager now, and I'll go ahead and not mention the UI disaster that W10 is, or forced updates, or telemetry, or the built-in always-allowed-fudge-the-hosts-file hosts, or the separation of so many things that just should be in the same menu, or the fact that they still have 98 icons; To point out that it would be great if wee were able to get GTK themes, or any theme system that doesn't require a 3rd party patch to the theme engine to install.

How likely is that, really?

I mean I get wee could probably install the required packages but won't there be some kind of technical limitation preventing this specifically?

Well, first thing that comes to mind is driver support, and if I know microsoft at all, they are going to strongarm every display company into /not/ having support for the protocols, because "Fuck you wee are microsoft, and this is our computer now."

Microsoft have been moving towards being more supportive of OSS more recently.  I really see no detriment to them for supporting bash (never mind the potential return of their EEE strategy).
Certainly useful for cross compatible application developers.

Actually, a few days after posting my last post, I saw that X11 apps run fine with it. Good stuff.
