Add short Microsoft Windows section #361
Welcome addition, thanks! Definitely willing to include a section like this.
How about we call it "Windows only"? I'd like to clarify that other items may apply to Windows, but that the OS X and Windows sections are for items that only work on that platform.
Secondly, I'm not a Windows user so would appreciate any review/feedback on this section from one or two more die-hard Windows folks!
I use Windows and Cygwin daily, so I hope my review will be useful. I took a quick glance through the rest of the document, and I don't see anything that doesn't also apply to Cygwin. So I think it is safe to include the Cygwin specific section. I have two suggestions:
But even without those changes, I think this an excellent addition to the document. I even learned something (about /dev/clipboard) even though I've been using Cygwin for years!
