Hi,

there is a new feature with the recent windows 10 update.
You now can compile and run your linux apps (console only) on 
windows.




Install XMing and run GUI apps too!

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:

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.

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

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.

For me it is the possibility to develop applications for the 
amazon web services cloud
while not leaving my windows system. I am used to windows but now 
I have the possibility
to also develop the needed linux artifacts directly without a VM 
or secondary OS on my machine.


Kind regards

The only thing you need is to install the build-essential 
package

sudo apt-get install build-essential


A simple hello world application is running fine.
Network functionality not tested so far.
