Michele Costabile created NETBEANS-4738:
-------------------------------------------

             Summary: On Windows, Netbeans should launch cmd (or PowerShell) instead of requiring
Cygwin
                 Key: NETBEANS-4738
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/NETBEANS-4738
             Project: NetBeans
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Michele Costabile


Netbeans should use a ubuquitous command line interface on Windows, rather than requiring
installation of an old unix emulation.

These days, one could have a complete Ubuntu emulation installed on Windows 10, or at lest
a working MSys shell installed with GIt. Few people woould find installing Cygwin a traightforward
configuration step.

Further, Netbeans should at least use a command line interface which is always there, like
cmd.exe. Customization to user content might be a plus, but only after defaults work out of
the box.
