Microsoft add Linux command line to Windows 10
Microsoft add Linux command.”Since we started planning and building Windows 10, we’ve been talking to a lot of you about what you would like to see in Windows to make it a great place for you to build awesome apps,sites and services for all platforms and all devices.”
With these words, Microsoft announced on his blog.
“In our journey to bring free software to the widest possible audience, this is not a moment we could have predicted.
Nevertheless, we are delighted to stand behind Ubuntu for Windows,
committed to addressing the needs of Windows developers exploring Linux in this amazing new way,
and are excited at the possibilities heralded by this unexpected turn of events.”
— Say:Mark Shuttleworth, founder of Canonical.
Microsoft in cooperation with Canonical in next versions of Windows 10 will add Bash Shell and Linux Command Line.
The company in the last period has increased cooperation with former rivals, but this is still a surprise.
The news comes from Microsoft Build 2016 conference in San Francisco.
More importantly than bringing the shell over to Windows, developers will now be able to write their .sh Bash scripts on Windows, as well (or use Emacs to edit their code).
The result is that you can now run native Bash on Ubuntu on Windows!
We can also access Windows filesystem from within Bash allowing to work on the same set of files using our preferred Windows tools or Linux command-line tools:
Microsoft also said:
We look forward to working with you to improve the Windows command-line tools and console:
