1. Windows Central Question's Avatar
    I would like to run Windows 10 and Ubuntu, preferably on a Surface Pro 4, but not tied to that. This is for a student who would like to be able to use both. Will Bash be enough? Is there a better configuration? Thanks

    If you're talking about using the Ubuntu OS I would do one of two things:

    Ubuntu in a Virtual Machine on top of Windows. I believe the Bash thing is a system thing for developers not for actually running a full Ubuntu end-user install. But I could be wrong.

    Dual-boot. Which allows Ubuntu to run without the overhead of Windows but is a more advanced installation and uninstallation procedure.

    As for hardware configurations, I'm not sure it matters. Depends on what you decide. Minimum 8 GB RAM for VM's, any other amount for dual-boot. Minimum 120 GB for either solution. I can't say how well Ubuntu will take advantage of the fancier Pro hardware though.
