Why unlikely?  That is exactly what is the case, if you are running
the current alpha build of Windows 10.
Build #14316? You have to switch to developer mode, then install the subsystem which is a "Windows feature". Both require administrator privileges IIRC. Then you can run `bash` or `lxrun /install` to download the Ubuntu tarball, allegedly from the Store.

Until I can go to the Store app on a clean Windows install, write "Ubuntu" and click on Install, I won't consider UoW as "available through the Windows Store" as Warren Young wrote.

You also need a huge pinch of good luck as the process is flaky as hell, often failing to present any preview builds at all.
