I thought this was interesting.

Any information on what that actually means?

I know what BASH and SSH are, but what real advantage does having it in Windows do for us?

Does it mean we can get rid of cygwin dependencies for those which need it now? Or is that unrelated?

Or does it simply mean I can script my Router updates (ie, WiFi password changes) directly without using 3rd-party tools like PuTTY?

EDIT: it looks as though both of my guesses are “correct”, according to this…


I think it’s pretty cool honestly.

Take a look at this:


Wow this is awesome.
