Windows Ten has the ability to run the Ubuntu Bash Console.
If I run Bash on Windows then I should have all that I need correct? I have thought about running a dual boot, because Ubuntu is GREAT! , However adobe Illustrator and Photoshop work on the windows OS. What would be the pros and cons of just using Bash on Windows vs. having a dual boot with Ubuntu? As a side note, Windows will be updating to allow this compatibility without being subscribed to the Windows Inside Member program. This is important if you are looking for stability and security.
I'm personally using Vagrant (https://www.vagrantup.com/) on my win10 system to configure my virtual machine with a linux development environment. There are many preconfigured dev environment available. Now i'm able to develop on windows with a shared drive and access the webserver on the dev machine with localhost. If a new developer is added to my team, he/she just installs vagrant, i give him my configuration file and his/her development environment is setup exactly the same as mine.
I'm personally using a virtual machine for Linux on my main desktop, but boot directly into Linux on my laptop. But I have used the Ubuntu bash shell on Windows 10, and you can use tools like Git, NodeJS, and MongoDB through it, so it's definitely an excellent solution for Windows users.
