This point is less relevant now with Windows 10 — it has to be enabled manually, but W10 comes with an integrated Linux shell (which is actually running Ubuntu). Using that has made it much easier to continue developing on a Windows machine as I get access to everything Ubuntu gives you without the need to switch OSs.
