Microsoft has announced "Ubuntu on Windows" in its annual developer conference this week announcing the partnership with Canonical to allow Bash on Windows natively. Microsoft also announced that in coming days, Ubuntu on Windows will be available for Insiders and will be rolled you to users till the end of this year.
Once it will be released, developers/users will be able to run Bash scripts and Linux command lines tools in Windows without any emulator or third party apps.
Now for those, who still didn't get what Microsoft is trying to do, they have released a 18 min Video explaining running bash on Ubuntu on Windows.
