Axiom on Windows 10

Tim Daly
1) enable developer mode
https://www.ghacks.net/2015/06/13/how-to-enable-developer-mode-in-windows-10-to-sideload-apps/

2) run powershell as admin

3) type:
Enable-WindowsOptionalFeature -Online -FeatureName
Microsoft-Windows-Subsystem-Linux

4) visit the Windows store and download Ubuntu 16.04

5) run Ubuntu to install it

6) dowload axiom binary
http://axiom-developer.org/axiom-website/downloads/axiom-ubuntu64-may2017-bin.tgz

7) untar the axiom binary
cd Downloads
tar -zxf axiom-ubutu64-may2017-bin.tgz

8) cd to the ubuntu subdirectory
cd axiom/mnt/ubuntu

9) set up the shell variables
export AXIOM=`pwd`
export PATH=$AXIOM/bin:$PATH

10) run axiom
axiom

Note that Ubuntu under windows accesses Windows files using an mnt prefix
e.g. mnt/c/ is the C: drive

So Axiom runs on my linux, mac, windows, and android (my phone / tablet)
