In that context I'm not so sure that's a good thing -- look what's
happened to some other popular systems that have been heavily influenced
by those who would supposedly prefer to do their development work on
such "primitive" systems!
What's more it seems a lot hypocritical to mangle perfectly fine Unix
filenames for this purpose while not at the same time spending a lot
more effort on ensuring that the code itself is properly portable to a
much wider variety of compilers.
