I have many friend who used to work with the .NET stack. So, I wanted them to try out Meteor. So, asking them to download Meteor and follow that was not enough.
So, I created this blog post.
In the above blog post, I introduce some of the basic Command Prompt stuff and introduce Text Editors and so on. May be this might help you to introduce Meteor to your friends who loves to(or used to) develop on Windows.
