I followed the instructions at https://github.com/Microsoft/CommandLine-Documentation/blob/master/commandline/WSL/install_guide.md and cannot find"Windows Subsystem for Linux" in the "Turn Windows features on or off" menu.

I am running Windows 10 Home. Does this require Pro? Or does it require a certain build #? I posted my build details in the graphics below:

win-build

Howdy, looks like you're not on build 14316 yet. Make certain you're on the Windows Insider Fast ring and pick up today's build.

For the record, the first officially supported build was released today on the Insider Fast ring. Official tweet is here. Release notes are here.

Also, important note. This feature is for x64 builds only. x86 is not supported and the option will not show. Can't tell which version you have from the screenshot.

Thanks, I'll wait for the preview build to come through in Windows Update. I'm running x64.

@caleblloyd You can actually goto "Updates and Security" in Settings and click "Check for Updates" to see the latest build update.

@raeesiqbal I just turned on Fast track, it's my understanding that it can take a couple days before the updates are available to me. I'll keep checking Windows Update until it does!
