hpst Would you be willing to work on this?
Well, I think it would be interesting to find out. Not sure if I have too much time though and I do not want to feel the pressure of someone whose life depends on this in my back. Hope you understand me correctly here. I am glad to help but I would assume that there are other possibilities as well.
E.g. currently I work with Windows 7. If I would have to do development work I would rather work with a Linux machine (easier to use Git, Ruby, Node, ...). So my idea is to use my Windows machine to connect through SSH to a Linux machine (or my Mac) and do development stuff there.
Hmm, ok guess your problem would also be the code editor. Well, I use VIM in the terminal. So this would not be an issue for me. However you could also use SMB or something to expose the Linux files over the network and you could use Sublime Text or whatever you prefer on Windows then. Or you can run a Linux virtual machine with VMware or Virtual Box.
