Hi joxley,

This may be a thing for some individuals, but I have the latest preview build for the fast ring, and don't have access to this feature yet.

With that said, last week I read the second blog post you referenced, and noticed this text:
Second, while you’ll be able to run native Bash and many Linux command-line tools on Windows, it’s important to note that this is a developer toolset to help you write and build all your code for all your scenarios and platforms. This is not a server platform upon which you will host websites, run server infrastructure, etc. For running production workloads on Ubuntu, we have some great solutions using Azure, Hyper-V, and Docker, and we have great tooling for developing containerized apps within Windows using Docker Tools for Visual Studio, Visual Studio Code and yo docker.

Third, note that Bash and Linux tools cannot interact with Windows applications and tools, and vice-versa. So you won’t be able to run Notepad from Bash, or run Ruby in Bash from PowerShell.
Who knows what will be possible as this feature matures, but for now, it seems like you won't be able to use Bash programs in SecureCRT.

Also, Rich Turner posted some comments to the blog post providing more detail about the communication limitation between Windows and Bash applications.
