Multipass for Windows
Following our macOS release, this time the team is really happy to announce another platform Multipass will speed your workflow on. You can now grab the installer package for Windows from our GitHub Releases page.
You need Windows 10 update 1803 or later and currently only Pro and Enterprise editions are supported due to the limitations of Home versions.
See here for detailed installation instructions.
Open Command Prompt or PowerShell and run:
It will download the latest Ubuntu LTS image and cache it for future use. You will see it gave your instance a fun name, too!
multipass shell <instance-name>
will then open a shell inside the instance, with the full power of Ubuntu at your fingertips.
See Working with Multipass instances for more information on how to use Multipass.
We’re looking forward to your feedback! The code that’s open-source is available on GitHub and that’s where you can submit bugs or feature requests as well.
We’re also hanging on IRC in
#multipass on Freenode.
Thank you, and thanks to the team that made it happen!
