As Chip said, UTF-16 is rather baked into the stuff we do. The console host does use UTF-16 somewhere in there. :P We just have the matter of dealing with code pages throughout the history of computing existence that causes us heartburn every time we think about how to fix this. :( It’s definitely something that we would like to look into on our backlog.
Come on MS, it's 2016 and still no utf-8? I can't input any CJK character using the built-in input method. This is really a show stopper of using bash on Windows to develop.
