Non-Microsoft Development on Windows 10

A post on HN today about the MS Surface Book also discusses the topic of developing on Windows 10 vs. OS X.

A few notes from that discussion (as of 10/6/2015):

  • Cmder as a OS X Terminal replacement in Windows 10.
  • Babun as a shell environment (described as "cygwin on steroids with oh-my-zsh").
  • Mentioned that there is little documentation on setting up "non Visual Studio dev environments on Windows (RoR, Django, PHP/MySQL, etc)".
  • Also mentioned that Windows users are still a huge minority in non-MS/non-.Net communities so many tools, etc. aren't built with Windows users in mind. (Which we were aware of already.)
