further developing Windows shell setup instructor guidance #1024
In working with students using the shell, Windows setups are always a slight challenge and the landscape of tools continues to evolve.
I recommend refreshing the overview of Windows tools to be more current, especially as instructors are advised to test them in advance of teaching and stay on top of this changing landscape.
I also recommend suggesting that, when appropriate for their audiences, instructors also consider testing Mac and Linux environments, even though shell functionality within these operating systems seems more routine and stable. This would help further empower an instructor to deal with setup issues to ensure efficient management of student shell setups and avoid encroachment upon class time.
