Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14295

Late last week, preview build 14295 started making its way to computers enrolled in the ‘Fast track’ Windows 10 Insider Preview program. Yesterday, the build was made available to computers on the ‘Slow track’.

This latest build actually includes some interesting features. Or it will when the accompanying developer tools become available. With this build, Microsoft is expanding support for Linux tools on Windows 10, including the BASH scripting language.

While not of much interest to regular users, adding Linux tools to Windows 10 shows that Microsoft is actually listening to developers and other power users.

Build 14295 also fixes some minor problems affecting XBox compatibility, the Edge browser, and Kaspersky security software.
