Why would you want to run your programs on Windows?
----------------------------

Dude, it's a tutorial!  How successful is a tutorial which starts:

  Chapter 1:  Getting Started...

  First, get a Linux box, because your windows machine sucks.  Then I'll
teach you to program.

I'm no Windows fan, myself, but I certainly won't ask someone to switch to a
new OS before they read my tutorial.

OK... I'll admit, I thought about it!  :)  ("If you're going to call
yourself a programmer...")  But really, it's a cross-platform language for a
reason, and it should certainly be a cross-platform tutorial for the same
reasons.
