    If you're a developer working with both Linux and Windows, you can now add Bash shell on Windows 10 to run Linux commands. Here's how to install the tool.

    Microsoft continues to invest on making Windows 10 the best productivity operating system, and in the Anniversary Update, the company is not only including great improvements and changes, but also adding a big feature for developers. We're talking about the Linux Bash shell, and this is a big deal.
    Bash shell is simply a command-line utility that has been part of Linux for a long time, and it's often used by developers. Microsoft added it directly into Windows 10 with the Anniversary Update, and everything works thanks to the new Windows Subsystem for Linux.
    Bash on Ubuntu on Windows 10 works natively there is no emulator, virtual machine, or anything of that sort. Microsoft and Canonical (the company behind Ubuntu) collaborated to bring a version of Bash that runs in the new subsystem alongside Windows applications. But don't get confused, this isn't Linux on Windows either, it's just a tool that allows you to run the same commands as if you were using a Linux computer.
