I am an experienced Windows developer (I wrote my first Win16 programs
with an SDK prerelease back in the mid-80s). Strangely I always found
the compile environment for Windows to be straightforward, whereas
getting stuff to compile (not to work, mind you!) under Unix/Linux was
frustrating (to avoid a harsher word).

It only shows that you like what you know and you know what you like.
