# WSL Windows Interoperability

You have to give it to Microsoft, they’re doing some pretty impressive stuff these days. Last night I got the latest Creators Update, and took WSL for another spin. It now ships with Ubuntu 16.04 and a tonne of improvements. We can now launch Windows applications from bash! For example, we can alias subl to run Sublime Text.

$alias subl="/mnt/c/Program\ Files/Sublime\ Text\ 3/sublime_text.exe" $ subl

To keep it working all the time, just at it to your .bashrc file.
