Chocolatey - Windows style apt-get package manager

Just discovered a nifty package manager for Windows - Chocolatey. Do not get fooled by the silly name - choco has 3k packages to choose from and give the Windows power user plenty of opportunities to automate stuff.

Git for Windows

Due to new workplace I had to adapt myself into using Windows (who would have thought after more than 15 years as a Linux power user!!). It took me long to discover a great tool to use for Git - called Git for Windows.

Not only it comes with a handy GUI to visualise commit history, branches and version control, but it comes with a 'Git Bash', which is a console loaded with Linux tools!
