Hi you say this is only for unix or Mac based systems but what about the rest of us - how can I carry on the coarse if I have a Windows system? Please don’t abandon me now pleaseeeeeee :slight_smile: thanks Lisa

Eh. It’s not really for an os as such, rather for a collection of programs one would expect to find on a unix-like system.

windows is more of a point-and-click thing, aside from microsoft products you just… wouldn’t

If you’re using windows 10 then you’d be able to use wsl, otherwise you can use msys2, they both provide a unix-like environment.
