Since windows "on the command line" supports &&, I believe this should work for ruby system commands.

It appears this run both commands, as expected (the first one fails):

using "||" works well:

>> system("ffmpeg -i || ls") # ffmpeg -i fails

using &&

>> system("ls && ls")
ls: &&: No such file or directory
ls: ls: No such file or directory
=> false

I could not reproduce this on 1.7 HEAD or master HEAD.
