'Sudo' is not recognized when trying to install Bourbon

When I type "sudo gem install bourbon" I get the message: 'sudo' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

HI Christopher,

If you omit the "sudo"? You can also try restarting the terminal. If it still doesn't work then you PATH variable was somehow overwritten.

Windows doesn't have sudo: just a reminder if you are on Windows.

If you need more help just give me a shout.

I didn't know that; I am on Windows.

When I omitted "sudo" I got an error message saying "Error fetching data." I just ran it again and got the error message, but then it went ahead and installed, I think. Bourbon and Thor (?).
