http://boxstarter.org/ script for .net development in a vm - run it by clicking here: https://is.gd/Zt6ziH
# boxstarter script http://boxstarter.org/
# source: https://gist.github.com/timabell/608fb680bfc920f372ac
# originally tested on win7 x64
# wip on win 10
# dotmatrix (windows branch) https://github.com/timabell/dotmatrix/tree/windows
# powershell profile https://gist.github.com/timabell/56254968905f9066ef88c1ae774a53d1
# This is a start of a build of a box I'm using at the moment.
# Fork this to your own gist, then comment/uncomment/add stuff to suit you.
# Some context: I hate windows, and only use it for work, the rest of the time
# I'm on linux; so when I'm doing client work on my kit that needs windows (I'm
# a .net contract dev) I run windows in virtualbox. As a result this build
# doesn't have a lot of tools you might use like dropbox etc as all that lives
# on my host machine and is all installed with apt-get (see my dotmatrix on
# github for the list).
# I'm also a vim user, so you won't see notepad++ or other common things of that ilk.
# Actually scratch that, notepad++ is too useful for looking into encoding problems.
# To run, click the link in the desription at the top of this gist page.
# This will only work in IE / Edge.
# Alternatively paste this link into internet explorer's address bar and hit enter:
# http://boxstarter.org/package/nr/url?https://gist.githubusercontent.com/timabell/608fb680bfc920f372ac/raw/boxstarter.ps1
# or the shortened version:
# https://is.gd/Zt6ziH
# If IE is your default browser you can simply paste into start > run without firing up IE first.
# Install log ends up in C:\Users\tim\AppData\Local\Boxstarter
# Note: last time I checked boxstarter installed an outdated version of chocolatey.
# I've been giving some thought to this approach, and it seems to me that while it's a good start, the variation
# in the needs for building a dev machine for different circumstances is such that you'll spend half your time
# fiddling with these script files to get them right for whatever situation you have on the day. I think we need
# another layer on top that allows you to pick the bits you want at the time, and add extra bits on demand.
# doesn't seem to work on win 10

# From Event Log: "Display driver VBoxVideoW8 stopped responding and has been successfully disabled."
# cinst VBoxGuestAdditions.install -version 4.3.20
# - latest version, awaiting moderation so have to specify
# needs updating, my virtualbox install provides v4.3.28 which does work with my win10 vm

# setup task bar & start menu
# pin vs to taskbar
# enable kdiff3 quit via esc
# kill crappy IE homepage
# auto-login - password in registry.
