Migration from Mac to PC

After a month of migration ... I've made quite a difference so I'll write a new article for it.

Deprecated !

Many of this is based on the post https://github.com/felixrieseberg/windows-development-environment

Shells

You know before hand that you would miss the shell when you become to use Windows. This is the first thought I had when thinking of migrating. When I really made the switch, it turned out not to be that bad ... since someone are just so awesome to create cmder to replace the inferior cmd.exe, and also Windows team is currently working hard, I guess, to bring full support for Ubuntu bash to Windows, of that, I would love to see soon.

Now, I use cmder as a shell with choco (Chocolatey) as a package manager (like apt-get or brew), also I try Ubuntu bash on Windows and still looking for a way to combine these things together with the right balance.

Git

Since I chose to choco, this is a piece of cake !

(cmder with administrator privilege)
cinst git.install  
cinst poshgit

# Restart PowerShell / CMDer before moving on - or run
$env:Path = [System.Environment]::GetEnvironmentVariable("Path","Machine") + ";" + [System.Environment]::GetEnvironmentVariable("Path","User") 

cinst Git-Credential-Manager-for-Windows  

Note: Copied from the post mentioned above.

ssh-copy-id

It is not a big deal though, but I really love this tiny program. There is no easy way to make it available in Windows. I just can find some Python scripts to do it ... so just put it in some easy access folder and python it every time I want to use it, which is not so bad ...

Keyboard Shortcuts

Language Switching

I use both Dvorak and Thai (Kedmanee) thus I have to switch between them. Using default Windows settings I would have to use alt + shift. While trying to change

Preparing Windows System For Development

The day has come. The day that I cease to use macOS and start to use Windows (again). This day, I am a developer now and Windows is notoriously known for giving bad development environment.

Not quite anymore there is someone writing a way to migrate me to the Windows system. Here it is: https://github.com/felixrieseberg/windows-development-environment

Basically, use install chocolatey, a package manager, and then use this to install the rest including cmder which is a replacement for PowerShell or CMD.

I have just started, and many more things are waiting for me....
