Create custom task for launching BASH to fix the following:
- Launch BASH in the virtual home dir – Don’t muck around with Windows filesystem from Bash on Windows. AT THE TIME OF THIS WRITING 8.18.2017 – Some of the permission mapping isn’t fully implemented and you can accidentally lose access to files via Explorer. Keep the two worlds separate if you can spare the space.
- Fix arrow keys in VIM. (After 20+ years of working on *nix I haven’t broken the habit of using the arrow keys yet)
