No need to turn on Developer Mode to run Bash shell on Windows 10!

The addition of Bash shell on Windows 10 was a major addition to Windows 10 Anniversary Update in August 2016 which was the Third Major release to the OS and at Build 2017, Microsoft announced that Bash Shells for Ubuntu, Fedora and SUSE OS will be coming to Windows Store instead of being hidden in beta in Turn Windows features On and Off .

Yesterday itself, Microsoft released Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 16215 as a part of Windows 10 Fall Creators Update which added a good number of features like improvements to Dictation, Cortana and Microsoft Edge. Along with this was  an unmentioned change that users now need not enable developer mode to install WSL .

This seems to be a strategy behind getting WSL to the Windows Store and might be just a little yet visible step in doing so.
