  • nvm for Windows

    A node.js version management utility for Windows. Ironically written in Go.

    I don't know why your comment got downvoted, but yeah there's a pretty neat & fast Nvm tool for windows written in Go.

  • nvm

    Node Version Manager - POSIX-compliant bash script to manage multiple active node.js versions

    I think gearwatcher covered things well--but the actually installation is much less fussy in WSL. You'll hit less build issues on random packages. You can use tools like nvm or asdf to easily install and manage multiple versions. You can setup extensions with ZSH & Oh-My-Zsh to add a bunch of helpful stuff to you CLI. So on and so on and so on.
