  • Having a single Perl installation where all modules worked would be great. Windows is not as bad as the haters make it out to be.

    I still wouldn't sacrifice the power of the *nix command line.

    I feel that the Windows marketers decided a long time ago to target people that were not interested in how things worked. The number of "us" is far smaller than the number of business people out there that want to point and click. As a result, they invest much more in developing applications that can be controlled through a GUI interface then in giving complete power at the command line.

    The *nix group realized there was a great deal of benefit to offering the "I don't want to have to think about this" approach and started offering GUI front ends while retaining the command line. I think this is the right approach. Eventually it will catch on.

    Till then, I have Cygwin to bring that approach to my Windows. So why use Windows at all? Well, every person's reasons for using or not using a particular OS are there own.
