How to install Bash in Windows 10 Anniversary Update

Introduction 

Anniversary Update for Windows 10 has been finally released.

You can wait for it to come with Windows Updates, or (like I did) grab it from here as a standalone executable and install it manually. 

Like I anticipated in my previous post Windows 10 to include Bash. Should you care? I don't, Windows 10 will include a Linux subsystem that allows to run Bash commands directly in Windows.

I already voiced my personal opinion on how irrelevant this is to myself personally, as well as to most UNIX/Linux users. However, it's a very exciting feature to test and it can result to be useful in some specific occasions.

Prep steps & installation

After installing the Anniversary Update, you'll need to enable Windows Linux Subsystem.
