Thank you for moving it up. It helps to bail out early enough when you don't even use that kind of system.
Though I was going to why it should say so in the title, I skimmed through the rest of the article and have to agree that actually most of it does apply to the other operating systems too.
So I have to say I am sorry I stopped reading in 1/3rd of the article.
Thank you for the offer of helping with setting up MongoDB, but I'm good. I have no issues doing the first few steps myself without guidance
100% understand. I know it can be super frustrating. I used Windows as an OS for the first few years when I started out and I hated getting 3/4 of the way through something only to realize there was no easy translation; even side booting Ubuntu only got me so far.
I’ll make a point to call out my local specs more prominently and higher up in future posts. I’ll also try to offer curl options, etc, when appropriate. Do you think it’s fair to ask readers to have a Linux-style terminal at their disposal? Like a Cygwin or Git-bash on Windows? I know Win10 is offering a Linux shell off-the-shelf.
I think that's very fair. On Windows 10, at least, a Linux side-install is very easy nowadays using "Windows Subsystem for Linux". That, or git-bash would work excellently.
I do think the bash is so standard that you could expect that even from a Windows user.
Thanks for the feedback. I’m going to do a follow up to this post on how to put this into a docker container and I’ll be sure to include options besides brew installs :)
