Microsoft recently announced a new Windows 10 feature: bash on Ubuntu on Windows, which allows ELF-64 Linux binaries to run, unmodified, on the new Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL).
Rich Turner outlines what bash/WSL is, why Microsoft built it, how it works, what was released, and what Microsoft learned since the initial release. Along the way, Rich explores some of the new features and capabilities added to bash/WSL and the Windows Console for the next version of Windows 10.
Rich Turner is a senior program manager at Microsoft, where he is responsible for bash on Windows and the Windows Console.
