Make sure the firewall service is running and then run from an elevated powershell prompt:
Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}

Already tried that, no luck.

It's not only the Start Menu that's broken, but the entire taskbar. The clock doesn't even update, it just keeps showing the time that explorer.exe was started at.

After going through a series of futile troubleshooting steps on IRC, I have determined that things are absolutely fucked and it's best to just reinstall. It might help if I knew what went wrong so I could avoid it next time, but oh well.

Can you get into task manager, run the admin log, and see what errors pop up?

So after a lot of messing around, I have established that the problem is caused by the driver for my graphics card. The card is old enough that AMD no longer supports it, and neither version of the driver I can download from AMD's website works, so I'm going to guess there is some incompatibility between that version and this Insider Preview release.

I will try a newer build (I was going to stick to the Slow ring, but if the current Slow build is broken I might as well go Fast), but if that still doesn't work I'll reinstall plain old Windows 10.

Following an upgrade to build 15025, my graphics driver works properly again. Somewhat annoyingly, though, Windows throws a tantrum and refuses to boot if it sees that its precious MBR has been switched out for a different bootloader, so I now have to use the Windows bootloader instead of GRUB to boot into OpenBSD and Debian.

At least I now have a Windows system with a modern Linux subsystem that actually works, though. Progress!

It turns out Windows Subsystem for Linux uses a default umask of 000. Not too impressed with that choice.

Surely a binary file of 000 wouldn't produce a meaningful program?

You said you've experienced a umask of 000. That doesn't sound like it would work.

It works perfectly well, it's just a terrible idea.

p. sure a function that wouldn't even meaningfully execute can't be reasonably considered to "work"

I now have audio working. It was a bit of a wrangle, but the process is largely documented in this blog post and this bug report.

program
function

Nice 180
Are you suggesting functions can exist without using any program memory? Because that'd be silly!!
