Drawback PowerShell Open Source Alpha18 on Bash on Windows 10

As we all know that PowerShell Open Source is a “work-in-progess” as it still in the alpha stage. So, previous version Alpha17 was a breakthru as it finally clear some bug in the Bash console. But, unfortunately it fell back with a different bug at the console level.

This is on the latest Windows 10 Insider build 16170.rs_prerelease.170331-1532.

It seem that when you’re typing to skips to the next line. And, sometimes I’ve seen the scroll up failing to display previous information.

The good thing is, everything work when using the Ubuntu Desktop under Windows X-Server. Also, the progress-bar issue got cleared and the Update-Help works.

Keep in mind, to use the “Update-Help -force“, you need to have admin privileges. So, use the following command:

sudo powershell

Patience is the key!

It will soon be fix. Remember to go to Github.com to post any PowerShell Open Source bugs: https://github.com/PowerShell/PowerShell
