Guys We should start documenting Wsl(Windows substem on windows) as a host. The thing is many tools need a *nix like system and windows users suffer. We should document the following:
whater tools like grub, bash other packages required for bare bones Meaty skeleton work on WSL.
How to set up some tools (X server) or some hacks
Mingw tools vs Wsl tools for some cases (Qemu and git for example)

Also if possible (not related to osdeving) is linux kernel/BSD compileable from WSL

If you're going to do a "OSdev tools for WSL" page, then to be fair/unbiased you should also do an "OSdev tools for Wine" page, an "OSdev tools for Linux" page, an "OSdev tools for FreeBSD" page, an "OSdev tools for Windows" page, an "OSdev tools for OS X" page, an "OSdev tools for FreeDOS" page, an "OSdev tools for Haiku" page, etc.

For my project, the main things that matter are the DHCP server and TFTP server (for booting test machines on the LAN via. PXE). For everything else, the OS I'm using for development is relatively unimportant.


Cheers,

Brendan
