Windows10 now has linux
command line apps in the app store, I went for Debian. Actually quite nice having an easy to get at linux
Then ISTM much easier to install signalk , just follow the rpi instructions, I couldn't get avahi working but it doesn't really matter.
ebian wouldn't run first time so after some google
pasted this into powershell running as administrator
"Enable-WindowsOptionalFeature -Online -FeatureName Microsoft-Windows-Subsystem-Linux"
Then install sigk.
Might b of interest to ..... maybe no one
