I’ve been meaning to post about this for a while, but it seems hard lately to make time to post here.
I personally hate windows shell, in my mind it is utterly useless. If I’m ever using it I’m probably not in a good mood. Powershell makes me laugh, like I’m sure it has some uses for people who for some insane reason run Windows servers, but for a sane developer; I think not.
Bash is where it’s at, probably the tool/language that saves me the most time on a day to day basis. Regex is a close second and guess what, Regex & Bash play very nicely together. Luckily I work with a company that exclusively uses Linux servers, because they make good decisions like that. 😉 So any server admin is painless, however for development, I still seem to be stuck in Windows land. I could make the leap over to just using Linux, however there are unfortunately a handful of programs keeping me on Windows and WINE still sucks.
