Agreed. I would happily move windows builds to the MSVC toolchain (which uses clang and which we use to build the Virtend VM).  I do use gnu make from Cygwin to build when using the MSVC toolchain; nmake is too crappy.  And I like using the Cygwin shell more than powershell. But I could be persuaded to switch over to powershell; not to nmake.
