Under Windows 10 we may soon be able to compile gargoyle without a VM

I'm going to test this later today, since I'm a windows insider. Maybe it will work without too much issue... :lol:

Haha, amen brother. I was told by a programmer friend that vi and emacs are the greatest thing. I guess it's like those people who held onto dos file managers even though windows had a simple useful gui- file explorer.

Until I found nano, I was really tired of text editing. But even that tiny package is not even default inside openwrt/gargoyle, pfft.

As for this development, it still may not allow us to compile. It's just a shell, the applications will have to be ported. I'm not sure how it will handle the annoying mess of linux/unix case sensitivity too. I know it has some use especially way back, but it's frustrating when a script fails because someone forgot to type a capital letter, lol!
