Microsoft's self-professed love for Linux seemingly has no bounds.
According to a session description from the company's Build 2016 developer conference which leaked overnight, Microsoft is planning to show off Bash running on Ubuntu Linux on Windows during this week's conference.
On Day 1 of Build, we already knew that Microsoft officials are planning to tackle the topic of "Windows Command Line Improvements" as part of its annual developer event. But exactly what kind of command line improvements are part of that session aren't yet public. (The description of that session's content is still listed as to come.)
However, given the latest session leak, it seems that Bash on Ubuntu will figure in somehow. Bash is a Linux shell. It's a set of add-ons and plug-ins that are a superset of the Bourne shell, and provide users with the ability to employ text commands to evoke specific actions (and/or to use scripts to do so).
As some have noted on Twitter today, there already are ways to get the Bash shell running on Windows, such as by using the Cygwin or MSYS utilities. But Microsoft seemingly plans to go a step beyond that.
