With latest Window Insider preview it's possible to run Linux command
from cmd, Windows commands from bash and even use input-output redirects!
Seems that WSL also automatically translate \r\n<->\n.
There still no (official) way to run GUI with WSL.
Is Cygwin still better for something?
I understand that WSL and Cygwin are completely different approaches,
but from user perspective both are kind of sets of GNU/Linux commands
and both are using some intermediate layer (cygwin1.dll or LXSS).
