Well, rock on Microsoft for once. Bug fixes to the latest Linux Subsystem for Windows now makes flawless cmake and SSH servers, so yes you can actually fire up VS2015 with its remote Linux project plugin and compile and debug Linux programs natively on Windows 10. X11 apps also now mostly work, I very nearly can get all the way onto a 'startkde', it just fails at the very end. Impressive. I'm just tooling up AFIO v2 with cmake and my god it's amazing to be able to seamlessly dual use Linux and Windows on the same directory tree. It all "just works", astonishing.
