okay so i'm running bash on windows. which is actually pretty cool. however, there are some gotchas. the first one i ran into, and it's a doozy, is the unix file system and the windows file system are seriously NOT compatible. you can find the unix files in AppData/Local/lxss. but just leave them be. cause if you edit one of them with say, visual studio, yer fucked. bash won't be able to find the file. well, it will be able to see it. but not access it. and certainly not delete it. and what's worse... windows won't be able to delete it either. which is just really goram weird. but... it's clearly labelled beta. so ya get whatcha get.
