    Running a Unix alongside Windows 10


    I have windows 10 latest running on a PC. I now need to run some version of Unix/Linux on the same machine for some weird software.

    What is the best way to arrange this?


    Thanks,

  2. Unix Commands in Windows Power Shell

    Dear Microsoft,

    I would like to thank you for emulating the Unix commands in the Windows 10 PowerShell. I have been migrating my development environment from Unix to Windows and being able to use my Unix muscle memory to list, copy, remove, and execute files has been a
    hugely helpful!

  3. Which Unix Do You Use?

    Also, since this is about Unix based OSes, why is everyone listing their Windows version? Besides, how is Unix related to a mac vs PC discussion?

    Services for Unix 3.5 uninstall from windows 7 to allow upgrade to windows 10 (SFU 3.5)

    Sure - unfortunately none of them work. All suggestions are basically: Try installer x - where that installer does not see the App installed, or go back to a recovery disk (which I don't have). I suspect there are some Registry Keys I can't see that need
    to be cleaned out and the App installers don't work because whatever the main one is is not there! e.g. on [Solved]Microsoft Windows Services for Unix 3.5 Completely Uninstalled - its says the following. But
    these keys don't exist! So I'm no netter off!

    2. Delete registry entries of Microsoft Windows Services for Unix 3.5 CAREFULLY


    • *HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft Windows Services for Unix 3.5
    • *HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft Windows Services for Unix 3.5
    3. Search throughout the hard drive and delete all associated files

    • *C:\Program Files\Microsoft Windows Services for Unix 3.5
    • *C:\Documents and Settings\A\Application Data\Microsoft Windows Services for Unix 3.5
