The Linux BASH command line is coming to Windows. Full integration, NOT a virtual machine! It is using the EXACT bit for bit copy of Ubuntu Linux.
Microsoft is reaching out to Linux developers in a way that the company never has before. "The Bash shell is coming to Windows. Yes, the real Bash is coming to Windows," said Microsoft's Kevin Gallo on stage at today's Build 2016 keynote. The announcement received an uproarious applause from the crowd. The new functionality will be enabled as part of this summer's Anniversary Update to Windows 10.
Essentially all your cli functionality is there in this BETA version of the release. There is no GUI compatibility for this, and no real intention for a Linux GUI. This is more for all you Linux developers out there that want to be able to build and test your code from a Windows 10 PC.
/mnt/c shows all your windows file/folder structure from Ubuntu, and vice/versa you can access all your Linux file system from the Windows file explorer! 100% full cross compatibility.
