Bash on Windows 10

I was pleasantly surprised to see that there is beta support for a Ubuntu-based bash on Windows 10.

An introduction is here, along with anĀ Installation Guide on the MSDN website.

apt-get pulls an obsolete version of NodeJS. To load the latest (as of today) NodeJS, use the following commands with root privileges:

apt-get -y update
apt-get install git
curl -sL https://deb.nodesource.com/setup_7.x | sudo -E bash -
apt-get install -y nodejs
