The very first Windows 10 Insider Preview build that includes support for world’s favorite Linux bash is now available for ‘insiders’. Implementation of bash was the news from the last week’s Microsoft event which broke the internet. By allowing users to use bash, Microsoft intends to attract more developers and make its new operating system Windows 10 even more popular.
The process of installation of bash is well described on tech giant’s blog. However in order to enable Ubuntu on Windows, users must put their system in developers mode from Settings app. After that you must enable the feature in Windows Features and download a runtime environment from the store.
The new build is probably the the most significant update since the release from November of last year. In addition to this ‘geeky’ and useful feature, the update includes many other changes. Cortana is now able to sync phone status and notifications between Windows and Android phones and Windows on the PC. She is able to help users find their phone by making it ring when its lost and if you look up directions on your PC, she can beam them to your phone for you.
The new build also updates the extensions support that first shipped a few weeks ago and also includes the first access to the new Skype Universal Windows Platform app.
Besides that Microsoft has worked hard to make changes to entire set of font-based emoji in Windows 10 that aligns with the Microsoft Design.
