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.

You're assuming LSW will become pre-installed on these workstations and
UoW will become a Windows Store "app". I'm not saying it can't happen,
but it seems unlikely at the moment.
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.
