I have the use of a dual-boot MacOS/Vista laptop.
"Subsystem for Unix-based applications" is a Microsoft download.
It means I can compile C programs using 'cc' or 'c89', and yep,

It's an alternative to MinGW or CygWin that might be worth exploring.
Visual Studio remains a separate product, but SUA is free.
