Matthijs just told me that an Ubuntu distribution is shipped standard as part of Windows 10. If that’s the case, would there be a way to recommend that our Windows users for PyStan use Linux rather than Windows for installs and running Stan?
He says it’s as easy as opening the command line and typing
bash. And the linux install instructions for PyStan work there.
I’m very worried about tens of thousands of new Windows/Python users from our Coursera course and am looking for ways to get around the install pain on Windows.
