Linux on Windows 10By Eric Antoine Scuccimarra
In my opinion, the one major advantage of developing on a Mac vs Windows was that OS X was built on top of FreeBSD so you could easily run Linux commands from a shell. To run Linux on Windows meant installing a virtual machine or some other complicated and annoying software. Apparently Windows now has a Linux Subsystem that is easy to install and use. I just installed it and it was fast and easy and I've had no problems so far. I don't think it will be as integrated into the OS as the Mac shell is, but it's nice to be able to run Linux commands.
