- Subject: Mintty + winpty vs wsltty
This question is about mintty and Windows Subsystem for Linux. If I have Git-Bash or Cygwin installed, how is this not as good as using wsltty?:
"C:\Program Files\Git\usr\bin\mintty.exe" --exec /usr/bin/winpty "C:\Windows\System32\bash.exe" -c "cd ~; $SHELL --login -i"
It seems fine, but I know that wsltty incorporates wslbridge. My solution is so simple I feel like something must be wrong :)
