My Dell XPS 13 got the update the anniversary update the other day. So I figured I would check out the new bash shell feature.
First impressions are actually pretty good. Once it was installed I played around with it, and its just like using the terminal as if I was in Ubuntu. I even played around with some python scripts and it worked as expected. Even used SSH normally!
If anyone wants to know, or doesn't know, you can even pass X11 through by installing xming and then typing:
I tried it out with Gedit and it works pretty well!
What is everyone's thoughts on this so far? I would have killed for this feature in my last job... they used Windows for Linux development which meant using an absolutely crazy system of cygwin and other tools... needless to say it was terrible. Still have no idea why they just didn't give people Linux machines.
