Windows Store has a new guest: Ubuntu, one of the most popular linux distributions around the world.

That is, something that seemed impossible a few years ago, today is a reality: Windows opens doors to Linux without fear, as an official app that can even be installed from its new Windows 10 S, operating system that will not allow the installation of any application if it is not in the Windows Store.

They already said they would do it at Build 2017 developer conference, but until today it was not possible to see the application inside the official store. Now it will be the turn of SUSE Linux and Fedora, two other distributions that will also have space in the Windows Store, which will allow us to run utilities from the Linux command line without having to leave Windows.

The goal is not to allow users to delete Windows to put Linux in place, but to offer the possibility of running processes and applications and share files and hardware with Windows, something necessary for those who work in computer networks with different characteristics.

To install it we only have to go to the control panel and access the option “Turn Windows features on or off”, where we will see the “Windows Subsystem for Linux” option, which will allow to run Ubuntu after reboot.
