Ubuntu Is In The Windows Store

Ubuntu Is In The Windows Store”

Two months ago at Build 2017, Microsoft announced that Ubuntu was coming to the Windows Store. This year the surprise continued by extending its Linux love to SUSE and Fedora distributions as well.

There have been a number of times where Windows has annoyed me to the point where I wish I could install a Linux distro such as Ubuntu. Ubuntu will run in a sandbox alongside Windows 10. Microsoft's Rich Turner also released an official announcement that lays out the benefits of this Windows Store version of Ubuntu as well as some helpful FAQs.

Ubuntu on Windows allows one to use Ubuntu Terminal and run Ubuntu command line utilities including bash, ssh, git, apt and many more. After installing, Ubuntu users will have to go through Control Panel and choose to "Turn Windows features on or off" then select "Windows Subsystem for Linux". There, you'll be able to select the "Windows Subsystem for Linux", which will allow Ubuntu to work following a reboot.

"Now, Windows is the only platform that can run both Windows apps and Linux apps side-by-side", said Microsoft.
