Hi Roy,

Bash Shell for Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) will soon be available in Microsoft Store. We encourage everyone to wait for further announcement.

As of the meantime, the latest version of WSL is Ubuntu 16.04. Before you can proceed with this update, make sure to enable the Windows Subsystem For Linux on your computer. Here's how:

  1. Open Settings and choose Update & security.
  2. Click For developers to the left and then select Developer mode to the right.
  3. Now launch the Control Panel and open up Programs and Features.
  4. Click Turn Windows features on or off and then check the box labeled Windows Subsystem for Linux (Beta).
  5. Click OK and restart your computer when prompted.

If you want to check what version of WSL you have at the moment, run this command: lsb-release -d.

Get back to us should you need further assistance.

Just noticed that openSUSE Leap 42 appeared in the Windows  Store.

  •  Found it to be not that useful.

Will keep using Ubuntu Bash Shell.
