Does it affect dash?
No. It is a "bashism", ie an extension specific to Bash. Busybox
users are not concerned neither.
A pity, on windows one can roll new software versions as long
as they are maintained.
It depends on the software (many abandoned Windows XP while still
"officially supported") and you shall not ask about the quality
of this software neither. Is not the same effort that goes into
legacy versions that it goes into newer versions.
BTW updating software on Windows is the PITAst of all ever
(except maybe some medieval tortures). You have to install
software manually, software after software. The first thing that
I love in Linux is the centralized update.
