Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14316 now supports Linux Bash command line

Yes you read the topic right, Microsoft this week released Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14316 which comes with support for Linux Bash command line. This development was revealed by Microsoft during last weeks Build Developers Conference. What this means is, you can now run Bash scripts, Linux command-line tools like sed, awk, grep, and you can even try Linux-first tools like Ruby, Git, Python, etc. directly on Windows. You can also access your Windows filesystem from within Bash allowing you to work on the same set of files using your preferred Windows tools or Linux command-line tools: To accomplish this, Microsoft built a new infrastructure within the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL), upon which a genuine Ubuntu user-mode image runs off it which was provided by Canonical, creators of Ubuntu Linux.
