    What do you mean by tools? You can find a good listing of the command line options on MSDN.

    Or get the GNU ports of those tools for Windows.

    My most common argument for Microsoft never getting rid of the "DOS" window is that if they did then how am I supposed to run my UNIX utilities.

    Yeah, having a foot in either world, I very quickly found that it helped to have a common set of tools for use on either platform. That's one reason why I keep my sockets programming as close to the UNIX model as I can and avoid Winsock's WSA* functions.

    So for Windows I got the GNU ports and for Linux I got ... well, Linux. Actually, there are a few tools I have on Windows that I miss when I'm running Linux, but they're all third-party, not Microsoft.

    That, and considering my years of experience with DOS and Windows (since my first PC/XT clone circa 1986), I feel like a newbie every time I log onto Linux.
