Ubuntu now on Windows Store – Install Ubuntu on Windows

Chưa phân loại

Following annoncement by Microsoft during its 2017 Build Developer’s Conference earlier this year that Ubuntu was to be made available on the Windows Store, now that announcement had been accomplished. Your popular linux distros “Ubuntu” is now available for download on Windows Store. We will be looking at steps on how to install Ubuntu on Windows later in the article.

As a linux fan, this latest development is a welcomed achievement. My primary day to day tasks are carried out on a Windows machine while all my Linux related tasks are carried out via a virtual machine.

With this, I can now use the Ubuntu Terminal on Windows and run basic Ubuntu command lines using the available utilities which includes bash, ssh, git, apt and many more.
