      Description

      Netbeans should use a ubuquitous command line interface on Windows, rather than requiring installation of an old unix emulation.

      These days, one could have a complete Ubuntu emulation installed on Windows 10, or at lest a working MSys shell installed with GIt. Few people woould find installing Cygwin a traightforward configuration step.

      Further, Netbeans should at least use a command line interface which is always there, like cmd.exe. Customization to user content might be a plus, but only after defaults work out of the box.
