Ubuntu, the popular Debian-based Linux operating system is now available in Windows Store. You can now download and install it on your Windows 10 PC and use Ubuntu Terminal and command line utilities.
You need to use “Turn Windows features on or off” and select “Windows Subsystem for Linux” to activate before using Ubuntu for Windows.
Ubuntu on Windows allows one to use Ubuntu Terminal and run Ubuntu command line utilities including bash, ssh, git, apt and many more. To use this feature, one first needs to use “Turn Windows features on or off” and select “Windows Subsystem for Linux”, click OK, reboot, and use this app.
The above step can also be performed using Administrator PowerShell prompt: Enable-WindowsOptionalFeature -Online -FeatureName Microsoft-Windows-Subsystem-Linux After above is done simply use “ubuntu” command in cmd.exe or launch Ubuntu from the start menu.
