At the beginning of the Windows 10 cycle, Microsoft opened up a user voice page asking Windows community what features they would like to see on Windows Command Line. Microsoft has heard its user community and plans to add Bash CLI to Windows 10. As per Microsoft, this would not be a bash simulator running on Windows 10, rather a native one.

Microsoft’s central themes to improve Windows 10 are,

  + Improve Windows Console
  + Bring Unix, Linux tools to Windows – grep, ssh, grep, awk etc

The result is that you can now run native Bash on Ubuntu on Windows!


Also you can now run Bash scripts, Linux command-line tools like sed, awk, grep, and you can even try Linux-first tools like Ruby, Git, Python, etc. directly on Windows. You can also access your Windows filesystem from within Bash allowing you to work on the same set of files using your preferred Windows tools or Linux command-line tools
