Ubuntu’s Bash Shell In Windows 10

Ubuntu ELF binaries running directly in Windows giving you access to bash shell right in Windows 10 cmd.

A few weeks ago I read about Microsoft declairing that it loves linux. Then some very neat news for Windows 10 users shows up today. Ubuntu Bash Shell right in windows 10. So, without having to run Cygwin or a VM you can do all your regular linuxing; apt, ssh, rsync, find, grep, awk, sed, sort, xargs, md5sum, gpg, curl, wget, apache, mysql, python, perl, ruby, php, gcc, tar, vim, emacs, diff, patch etc.

I’m not a Windows user (mainly OSx), but I can definately see the excitment for developers who are. I did brefily have a Windows 10 tablet which I really started to like.  However Cygwin wasn’t a great experince for me on it. I eventually dual booted with Fedlet, a 32bit UEFI version of Fedora with some tweaks for drivers (If you want Linux on your 32bit UEFI Atom Tablets).  Having native bash might have kept me from going back to my Android Tablet, maybe.

Microsoft has been doing some neat things lately!  Windows IOT, a partnership with Cyanogen, and don’t forget about all the great Android apps they’ve been making.  (Check out their Android Launcher Arrow)

It looks like if you’re signed up for Microsoft Insider, you can go try it out!

    all the address of the property, detailed
    sales cost, and also the name of the agent who had gotten a signed
    right to market contract with a homeowner.

    Though crowdfunding will allow more people access to
    the commercial housing marketplace, for businesses being able to solicit
    investments in projects in the general public online both
    substantially raises businesses’ ability to raise the capital they need, from a greatly expanded pool of potential investors,
    but may also considerably boost the likelihood of litigation, particularly if
    the investment performs poorly.

    changing so having some one whose scrutinizes the real estate industry daily on your own side
    is a big plus.

    Real estate brokers and sales agents must be experienced in the property market in their area.

    I’ve been surfing online greater than 3 hours today, but I never found any
    attention-grabbing article like yours. It is lovely value sufficient for me.
    In my opinion, if all website owners and bloggers made
    excellent content as you probably did, the net might be much more helpful than ever before.

    Hi this is kinda of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG
    editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise so
    I wanted to get advice from someone with experience.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!
