It is a dilemma when you want to switch from one operating system to another. Sometimes there are some windows lovers, but they still want to use the Linux environment while they are having the windows. For that, Windows 10 has come up with one of the best ways to do this madness.
Ubuntu first came to the Microsoft Store as an app in 2017, and it allows people who install it to run a full Ubuntu terminal from within Windows 10, granting them access to tools such as git, ssh, apt and bash.
Windows 10 needs to be updated to include the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, released in October 2017. This update includes the Windows Subsystem for Linux which is needed to run the Ubuntu terminal.
- Use the Start menu to launch the Microsoft Store application.
- Search for Ubuntu and select the first result, ‘Ubuntu 18.04 LTS’,
- Click on the Install button.
Ubuntu will be downloaded and installed automatically. Progress will be reported within the Microsoft Store application.
