Anyone tried to manage Windows 10 via the new Bash for windows using chef?

@trg The bash on Windows (via the Windows Subsystem for Linux) is a sandboxed environment not intended for administration, so it doesn’t have access to many of the things you’d need to administer the box. You could manage the ubuntu bits that are used on the box (and still need to be managed) but you wouldn’t be managing the whole windows image.

Also, those WSL bits are not available on Windows Server, so it’s a client only story.
