Install Bash on Windows 10


Windows 10’s Anniversary Update comes with  a big new feature for developers:

A full, Ubuntu-based

Bash shell that can run Linux software directly on Windows. This is made possible by the new

Windows Subsystem for Linux” Microsoft is adding to Windows 10.






This isn’t a virtual machine, a container, or Linux software compiled for Windows (like Cygwin).

Instead, Windows 10 gains a Windows Subsystem for Linux, which is based on Microsoft’s

abandoned Project Astoria work for running Android apps on Windows.


How to Install Bash on Windows 10
