Whats new in Windows 10 Bash/WSL & Windows Console

I love how Microsoft is embracing Open Source with Windows 10. The Windows 10 Creators update expands this integration even further.

Bash/WSL & Windows Console new features

Starting with the Windows 10 Creators Update the WSL has been designed to be compatible with the Linux System Call Interface (SCI) and as a result, it worked with most of the mainstream developer tools. The Windows 10 CU supports the following developers’ tools:

- Core tools: apt, sed, grep, awk, top, tmux, ssh, scp, etc.
- Shells: Bash, zsh, fish, etc.
- Dev tools: vim, emacs, nano, git, gdb, etc.
- Languages & platforms: Node.js & npm, Ruby & Gems, Java & Maven, Python & Pip, C/C++, C# & .NET Core & Nuget, Go, Rust, Haskell, Elixir/Erlang, etc.
- Systems & Services: sshd, Apache, lighttpd, nginx, MySQL, PostgreSQL.

Yet another mention worthy thing is the Ubuntu 16.04 support, yes while the Windows 10 AU supported Ubuntu 14.04 the Windows 10 Creators Update supports Ubuntu 16.04. All the newly created bash instances will now be installed to Ubuntu 16.04, However, the existing Ubuntu 14.04 instances will not automatically upgrade to 16.04 and you need to manually upgrade the instance to Ubuntu 16.04 by using either Remove and Replace or Upgrade in Place.
