Re: WTF?

I'm using it EVERY DAY!!!!

Work polices force me to install Windows 10.

Until last year I had a Ubuntu VM running the whole time for development.

Now I have a Bash terminal open, where I have access to all the Ubuntu tools.

The limitation is accessing from Windows the directories under WSL control. Getting around that is as simple as working the whole time in a directory under Window's control (/mnt/c)
