Good news, I'm really not that keen to write a powershell script.
What OS does it detect and download?


I am not sure how to get this information.
The windows functionality is labeled as "Bash on ubuntu on windows".

I executed the commands from the script manually:
uname -s
Linux

uname -m
x86_64

Kind regards

It's offer full Linux Kernel API to *nix applications. Even a VFS following the Ubuntu filesystem conventions, where Windows drives are mount like /mnt/c , /mnt/d , etc. Really you have a full Ubuntu working on your Windows on some kind of inverse Wine.

However, the new console of Windows 10 (that got a lot of improvements), have some nasty problems related to keyboard input that make using some ncurses, and similar, more problematic. For example, arrows on Vim/NeoVim not ends to work correctly. And actually using conemu and similer alternative terminals are hit by the same issue. Also, there is some people that manage to run X11 apps, using a Windows native X11 server plus (a full GNU/Linux desktop).

This is really great for Linux & Unix fans that need to work on Windows by causes outside of his control. Sadly, where I work, we are using Windows 7, so I need to use to Cygwin and his "limited" set of packages.
