Zentara said:I think it's easier to just learn linux, where it all works flawlessly without all the hoops to jump through. :-)

Indeed, the *NIX operating systems were (and are) written by Programmers with the Tools that Programmers need integrated (for some value of 'integration') with each other. In the Linux/Solaris/*BSD environments I don't have to jump through hoops. Unfortunately, about 75% of my customer base is running on some flavor of Windows, and my code has to work for them as well.

I develop in Perl on a Linux machine. I do my testing and first level QA on a Solaris desktop and a Wintel laptop. When I turn the package over to the real QA group, they test it on a combination of various version of Windows on different hardware platforms. I have supply a port all of the Modules that I used in my development environment, or QA (quite rightly) will fail my code as "un-testable and un-verifiable; not approved for production".

Like many things, it's all a compromise....
