Windows Linux stuff

(1/2) > >>

Has anyone tried the windows linux gear for dev work? I'm mostly just looking for bash and the regular command line dev toolchain. How well does it work and how well does developing with the linux tools cooperate with using native windows tools?

Also, anyone remember Microsoft's "Get the facts" anti-linux campaign? Man how times have changed...

There are much easier ways to get the command line stuff if that's the main thing you are after:

If your goal is to actually run and use linux, that's a whole other ball of wax and I haven't tried it.

if you install Git on your windows machine you can use gitbash.  I have that as my defaul CLI in VSCode and forget that I'm not using a pure linux terminal

I use cmder with git at work. I guess it must use gitbash because I have access to linux commands somehow
