A few months back, Microsoft announced at its Build 2017 developer conference that Ubuntu would be coming to Windows 10. The announcement sent shock waves through the tech community. The walled garden of Microsoft welcoming Linux? This was the stuff that only happened in dreams. And today, that dream has officially become a reality. The popular Linux distro is now available to download on the Windows 10 Store.
But this is only the first of what is to be the many Linux distros set to come to Windows 10. Microsoft also announced that following Ubuntu, we can expect to see SUSE Linux and Fedora coming to Windows 10 as well. These Linux distros will be running in a sandbox environment alongside Windows 10. Thus, when you install Ubuntu, you’ll get its famous command-line interface that now has shared access to files and hardware utilized by Windows 10. And therein lies the catch.
As it’s description in the Windows Store reads, “Ubuntu on Windows allows one to use Ubuntu Terminal and run Ubuntu command line utilities including bash, ssh, git, apt and many more.” If you’re a software developer, then that sentence would’ve made sense. For the rest of us, that might have sounded Greek – and that’s the point. The Ubuntu you find on the Windows Store isn’t the complete Linux distro.
You won’t be able to run a separate Ubuntu installation inside Windows 10. The only Linux experience you’ll be getting with this is its famous command line because this isn’t made for everyone that is a fan of Linux. This is a tool for developers who wish to utilize the command-line environment and the core features of Ubuntu. In doing so, it can help them build apps with ease. As such, if you want a true Linux experience you’ll still need to run a dual-boot system.
But for those of you who are curious and have joined the Windows 10 Insider Program, you can download Ubuntu for Windows 10 on the Store here. If you wish to join the Windows 10 Inside Program, then click here. However, to install it, you’ll first have to navigate to Control Panel on your PC and navigate to the “Turn Windows features on or off” menu. Afterward, select the “Windows Subsystem for Linux” to let you run Ubuntu after rebooting your system.
Once you do, you’ll have the power to control Windows 10 with the famous Ubuntu Command Line and many of its core features. But if you want the complete Linux experience, you’ll still need either a Virtual Machine or setup a dual-boot system. In case you want to know what Linux does better than Windows, here are 13 answers to that question.
