Linux in Windows
Some distribution of Linux was little quite for some world wide users. But now feel free to use these distribution with Windows 10 Home latest build. It is a special build edition by Microsoft. Now it is a time to run Bash scripts, Linux command-line tools (e.g. awk, grep, sed etc.) and Linux-first tools (e.g. Python, Ruby, Git etc.) directly on Windows.
According to Rich Turner (Microsoft senior program manager) that “WSL is still a work in progress. We’re not done yet. We have a long way to go yet until we can fully say that this thing is really comprehensibly compatible with the majority of [developer] tools that you want to use.” He also said that “WSL is for shell-users and programmers. Microsoft doesn’t object to you trying to run X Window graphic programs, but don’t expect much help from them either.”
It is very simple to install.
Step 1 – First of all, boot up windows 10
Step 2 – Go to Setting > Update and Security >For developer
Step 3 – Search for “windows features” > Turn on Windows features on or off”
Step 4 – Enable Windows Subsystem for Linux (Beta) > OK
Step 5 – Open a PowerShell prompt as administrator and run following command –
|Enable-WindowsOptionalFeature -Online -FeatureName Microsoft-Windows-Subsystem-Linux|
Step 6 – Restart your computer when prompted
Step 7 – Open a command prompt
Step 8 – Run bash
After at all, you have accepted the License, the Linux user-mode image will be downloaded and a “Bash on Ubuntu on Windows” shortcut will be added to your start menu.
To launch Bash on Windows, either run bash at a cmd/PowerShell command-prompt, or use the start menu shortcut.
Now use Linux freely…
