Windows 10 Insider Update Now Ships Ubuntu Bash For Windows
I'm excited for Ubuntu on Windows 10 for reasons outlined in that article. Thus I just signed up for Windows Insider and am going to be installing a fresh Windows 10 system this afternoon for benchmarking!
The "Bash on Ubuntu on Windows" support is made available with today's Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14316. Those interested in more details on the support in today's Windows Insider update, see this Microsoft blog post. I'll hopefully have out the initial results tomorrow; if you want to see some thorough performance tests, please consider joining Phoronix Premium to help support this work so I can devote more time for making this latest Windows vs. Linux comparison quite interesting. With having a fresh Windows 10 install around, I might also (separately) do some new OpenGL and Vulkan Windows vs. Linux benchmarking if there's sufficient support.
