An anonymous reader quotes InfoWorld:
A massive set of changes to the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) was rolled into Windows Insider build 15002… If this is any hint, Microsoft’s goal is nothing short of making it a credible alternative to other Linux distributions… Some of the fixes also implement functionality that wasn’t available before to Linux apps in WSL, such as support for kernel memory overcommit and previously omitted network stack options. Other changes enhance integration between WSL and the rest of Windows…
[O]ne major issue in build 15002 is that Ctrl-C in a Bash session no longer works. Microsoft provided an uncommon level of detail for how this bug crept in, saying it had to do with synchronization between the Windows and Bash development teams. The next Insider build should have a fix. But for people doing serious work with Linux command-line apps, not having Ctrl-C is a little like driving a car when only the front brakes work.
