The other day, I set out on a journey to get many of the wonderful Unix tools running on Windows in something that resembles a terminal. In case you did not know, you can come a very long way by installing msysgit. It includes a terminal called Git Bash and all the common Unix tools such as sed, grep, awk, perl, find and so on. It also includes an ssh client and curl. I have been using this for about a year now and it is quite convenient when you are forced to work on a Windows machine. I know Windows has Powershell but… I just do not like it.
