comment Is Cygwin or Windows Command Prompt preferable for getting a consistent terminal experience for development?
btw James, this is a good note, only reason I didn't mark it as the answer was it did not directly answer my question. I didn't do you any favors phrasing it the way I did though. The current updated version of the question is more to-the-point.

comment Should a programmer worry about the technology stack of the shop?
Learned that the hard way... Got a question closed. This is an excellent question, wrong forum. Try on "workplace" which is currently in beta. Seems it would fit marvelously there.

-1 for not answering the question. This is not bad information, but is entirely unhelpful towards the end of the question.

This is helpful. Closest thing I have to an answer, see my update for why I haven't selected it as THE answer. As a side note, using a VM for compiling Windows binaries is not a suitable option for Windows Phone development. Mainly because running and debugging a phone app in an emulator, or on the phone connected to the VM is not currently a supported scenario for the development tools. Admittedly other Windows projects might work fine with that solution, but I suspect there are good reasons not to use a VM.

comment How do you estimate the time required for a “research phase” in agile development?
...I wrote the "update 2" section before reading this, for whatever reason I overlooked it. While it is certainly sufficient, I would appreciate if you could elaborate upon how a lead developer makes an intelligent judgement call in this area. But either way, thanks!
