I’ve been developing apps on OS X for about 5 years. Many recent things have me rethinking OS X and looking at Windows again. I purchased a SurfaceBook with Windows 10. I absolutely adore it. Setting up the development environment has been mostly but not totally painless. All of the items listed have Windows and OS X versions.
Things to download and install:
R and RStudio
Visual Studio (try them all, I use Code for simple stuff, Studio for complex projects)
Calibre (pdf catalog for keeping all your manuals and technical papers organized)
“The term ‘conda’ is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet…..”
Open a terminal
type bash at the prompt, and try again.
Running Python and other languages from Visual Studio requires a tasks.json file in the .vscode directory.
Unbutu on Windows
What works so far:
Anaconda 2.7, 3.5 ( *Installing Anaconda on Windows 10 Ubuntu )
XGBoost (conda install -c creditx xgboost )
Then (conda install theano)
TensorFlow (conda install tensorflow)
The easiest way is to download and install Anaconda, then use conda install to install other packages.
* Theano not working on Windows 10 Bash
OMP: Error #100: Fatal system error detected.
OMP: System error #22: Invalid argument

This is actually a scipy fail. See discussion on turning off KMP affinity ENV setting ( add export KMP_AFFINITY=disabled to your .bashrc file, close and reopen bash shell )
( * I’m only using CPU, haven’t figured out GPU support yet )
