How to enable Bash in Windows 10 developer preview?

The Bash feature isn't available on build 14295.

  • Scott answered a question that an update will be coming soon to insiders (Microsoft want to make sure everything is OK with this feature before pushing it to Insiders)
  • I've been chatting with a Microsoft Program Manager (Sarah Cooley) and she confirm that she have the Bash feature on Build 14311 (which isn't out for insiders yet)
