MobaXterm will get you a UNIX-style shell environment running on the Windows file system and it's up and working faster than Cygwin. It can even run xeyes which Windows 10 won't be able to according to MS' release notes.

To be honest there doesn't seem much to recommend Windows 10 over MobaXterm or Cygwin given all the limitations listed.
