1781. Linux in Windows?

I like some Linux applications. Is there a way to run some Linux apps in Windows 10?

Bash. There is a new feature that let's you run some Linux programs in Windows. http://www.pcworld.com/article/2875600/windows/windows-10-the-best-tips-tricks-and-tweaks.html#slide12

The Windows 10 Anniversery update added the full, legendary Bash shell to Windows 10. It is running natively not as a virtual machine. With the right tricks you can even use Bash to run graphic Linux applications and even the Unity desktop right inside Windows.

To enable Bash head to the Settings, Update and Security, For Developers and enable Developer Mode. Then navigate to the Control Panel, Programs, turn Window features On and activate Windows Subsystem for Linux. and click OK. You will need to restart and then search for Bash.
