Microsoft and Canonical partner to bring Ubuntu to Windows 10 image/svg+xml

According to sources at Canonical, Ubuntu Linux’s parent company, and Microsoft, you’ll soon be able to run Ubuntu on Windows 10.

Blimey. If this is true, it’s fabulous news. I can’t wait to read more details about the partnership.

Update: Here’s how Microsoft will support Bash on Windows 10

Based off developer feedback we’ve done a couple things: First we made investments that improve cmd, PowerShell, and many other command-line tools and developer scenarios. Second we decided to grow our command line family by adding real, native Bash and with it support for Linux command-line tools which run directly on Windows in an environment that behaves like Linux.

Wow. Again, fabulous news.
