Microsoft is bringing the Bash shell to Windows 10

Please don’t flog me if this topic is not relevant but for those of us stuck at work with a Windows desktop/laptop this will be heaven...

"a new Linux subsystem in Windows 10"

Wow. Remember that Microsoft retired SUA/SFU.

Several hours ago I sent an email at work with the subject line "Bringing all the stability and security of Windows to Ubuntu." I'm really torn, because on one hand I think this is horrible idea, per that subject line. On the other hand, IF it actually works, having useful tools (esp. SSH) on Windows would be cool for us on this list.

But for those new to Ubuntu, how does saddling Ubuntu with all the pain, instability and insecurity of Windows affect the perception of Ubuntu?

And related, how will this affect Cygwin?
