Cmd win8 Prompt is running slow
I'm using win8 cmd prompt locally and after generate scaffold and FB:migrate there is always a long lag time (mins not seconds) where the cursor blinks. Is this normal? In the video it seems it's only split seconds. I also tried VM with Cmdr - same result.

Yes, you can use Git Bash. Also, you should never use Windows for Rails development. I suggest installing your own Linux on virtual machine like VMWare Player or, if you're courageous, dual boot. Treehouse VM doesn't really make things easier.
Thanks - I'll give Linux on VMWare a try first. Never is a strong word - why is that? why should you never use Windows for Rails development? What code is good on a Windows machine?
