    Has anybody tried out the new bash already

    I'm curious, has anybody already plaid with the new Linux subsystem (bash)? I don't know about you but I love it. Finally I can use the powerful commands of Linux to create folders, files etc. For me that alone is worth the update.

    I've installed it on the desktop and it is working. So I installed it on my laptop and it lets me enter a password. But when I try to sudo it asks for the password and gives me Sorry, try again.

    After a clean install I encountered that error tool. In my case there was apparently no root password set. I set it with "sudo passwd root" which let's you set a new password for root. Now it works. But what has never worked so far is network access. I just cannot get internet access.

    I've fixed network access for the bash. Apparently the firewall was blocking the outgoing connections over ports 53 and 80. Allowing "System process" outgoing connections over these ports has fixed it.
