Kevin Foster commented on NETBEANS-181:


I've been using Netbeans 8.2 on Windows 10 with Lxss (Ubuntu 14 and 16) for 
some time without an issue. I primarily run npm, composer, git and other dev 
tools using the lxss and just run netbeans in windows 10. I use sym links in 
lxss like 'ln ls /mnt/c/Users/<username>/Projects/<project name> ~/<project 
name>" to make it easier to bounce to my netbeans project directory.

I'm not saying this will work with everyone. In addition I think windows lets 
you install any version of linux now so it's a complicated situation. 

It would be nice to integrate these a bit better. However, I have gotten the 
linux version of netbeans to run by installing Cygwin X as an X server.

>             Project: NetBeans
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>          Components: cnd - Terminalemulator
>    Affects Versions: Next
>         Environment: NetBeans 8.2, Windows 10 x64
>            Reporter: Christian Lenz
>            Priority: Major
> Yeah Ubuntu on Windows is, I think still in beta but I use it for my daily 
> work. At home and at work. It is really handy to setup enviroment stuff 
> easily. So for this, NetBeans should be aware of installed stuff inside the 
> ubuntu on windows. The path is "C:\Users\Chrizzly\AppData\Local\lxss (hidden 
> folder)". So if NetBeans are aware of a cygwin installation, it should be 
> treated like that too.
> And for everything else like I installed node, c/c++ stuff, php and so on.
> Would be great enhancement. I created such ticket for Terminal integration 
> too, because of the Cygwin thing:
