You now can compile and run your linux apps (console only) on windows.


For those who might not be aware of this and are looking for a little more info, it's called the "Windows Subsystem for Linux" (WSL)

Wikipedia Entry: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_Subsystem_for_Linux Microsoft's overview: https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/wsl/2016/04/22/windows-subsystem-for-linux-overview/ Microsoft blog post: https://blogs.windows.com/buildingapps/2016/03/30/run-bash-on-ubuntu-on-windows/

On a related note, Microsoft has also created an open-source MI interface to GDB: https://github.com/Microsoft/MIEngine. You can install the Visual Studio 2015 plugin through Nuget - if I remember correctly it is this plugin: https://visualstudiogallery.msdn.microsoft.com/725025cf-7067-45c2-8d01-1e0fd359ae6e. There's a nice video about it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-3toI8L3Oug

I currently use this to do ARM microcontroller development in Visual Studio 2015 with GCC and OpenOCD.
