Yay bash! Still have not found a good powershell replacement for grep… sure there is ‘select-string’ but meh…

Anyways how to install bash on Windows 10:

  1. Make sure you have the right version of Windows 10 and the Anniversary Update installed!
  2. Start -> Settings -> Update & Security -> For Developers -> Activate Developer Mode

  7. Once finished you should have “Bash on Ubuntu on Windows”

In other words, when Secure Boot is enabled, you will only be able to boot Microsoft approved (cryptographically signature checking) operating systems.
