In the Windows 10 Anniversary update you’re able to install the “Windows Subsystem for Linux”, see the Bash on Ubuntu on Windows blog.
Then in August we announced that Powershell had been opensourced and available on linux : https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/powershell-is-open-sourced-and-is-available-on-linux/.
The version of Ubuntu that gets installed is 14.04 – which is supported by Powershell. So obviously the first thing you’ll want to do on your Windows 10 OS, is install Bash then Powershell and then the Azure module for Powershell. If only for a change of scenery and a bit of script-inception.
