Linus and Luke not knowing of 'winget'.
1 project | reddit.com/r/LinusTechTips | 10 Jan 2022
I really like chocolately. It’s a windows repo service sort of like npm but for windows applications. It has a UI too. I imagine it’s similar to winget. https://chocolatey.org/
Recommended way for win(7 or 10) VM?
1 project | reddit.com/r/archlinux | 8 Jan 2022
Check out https://chocolatey.org/ for a cli based pseudo-package manger. Looks like they have a package for llvm.

I recommend ninite or chocolatey.
1 project | reddit.com/r/webscraping | 6 Jan 2022
If you are on Windows, you can use Chocolatey instead of homebrew.
Helping set up parents' brand new Dell remotely, Windows 11, what most basic items should I load + clean for them? (usually a Mac user)
1 project | reddit.com/r/software | 5 Jan 2022
That wasn't really a question. But I would suggest using something like a Ninite installer to add the programs you want and keep them up to date. If you're a little more tech-savvy, you could use the Chocolatey package manager which gives you a lot more options.

Or, you can just use scoop on Windows PowerShell.
Can anyone relate?

scoop.sh is my fav.
Do you use Winget as your official package repository?
1 project | reddit.com/r/sysadmin | 10 Jan 2022
Even that, scoop is miles ahead of winget. So much so that even the official Microsoft docs (for certain products) have began referencing or including scoop install commands.
Brand new high-end PC performing WAY worse than expected

Go to https://scoop.sh/ and install following the instructions provided.
Codeblocks or Visual Studio?
1 project | reddit.com/r/C_Programming | 28 Dec 2021
As for my opinions about the others, I wrote my thoughts about Visual Studio in my other comment (in short it's good but feels too bloated). Then I tried VS Code which is kind of the opposite, it's not "bloated" enough. It's a really good text editor and very useful for coding in different languages, but for C/C++ you have to do a lot of initial configuration to get building, compiling, running and debugging to work. It's more difficult on Windows which doesn't come with GCC (after trying different options I found that Scoop is an easy way to install GCC on Windows). After that you have to get some VS Code plug-ins to make the experience smoothe;, but to me, it still doesn't feel quite as smooth as a dedicated IDE. But still it's a great advanced text editor and many people would appreciate its flexibility. I just don't think it's the best for beginners.
I have found out today about "windows power toys" and the neat features it brings to windows 10 and wanted to share it with you guys :)

while we're at it, might as well shoutout winget/scoop/chocolatey for those who want to try package managers on windows
Need help with C# Omnisharp Neovim Setup
1 project | reddit.com/r/neovim | 22 Dec 2021
Other question: Why use WSL if the projects already work on Windows? I personally would just use Windows at this point. Omnisharp works and neovim is perfectly rendered using the Windows Terminal (in the store, I recommend the preview version). Unless you really need a Linux machine for some reason, learning to use Windows and powershell is also a great skill. To bring the Linux package experience, you can also use scoop. That is only my personal preference though.
Ask HN: Windows users, what software do you find essential to your workflow?
4 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 16 Dec 2021
Windows is by far my most used operating system, and even though I run Linux on my laptop and my work machine, my personal computer still runs Windows 10 LTSC and I often do my development work from it.
Some pieces of software that I find essential:
* scoop (https://scoop.sh/)
I... dont think that goes in the console
8 projects | reddit.com/r/ProgrammerHumor | 15 Dec 2021
It's also available on scoop if you prefer a package manager approach to installation/updates. No need to use the awful Microsoft Store.
