Modern Windows 10 can build and run Linux software, thanks to the
confusingly named "Windows Subsystem for Linux" (aka "Bash on Windows"),
which is based on Ubuntu (14.04 if I recall correctly). IIRC there's a
Windows setting to be frobbed first, and then the feature needs to be
actually installed, but once that's done, a Unix terminal environment is
at your fingertips. And ever since the Creator's Update, it even no
longer crashes when trying to rename a directory.
