Ethereum 101 on Windows

background / baseline context I’m not even remotely suggesting that this is new info but even though there’s some very friendly guides already cooking out there, I ran into mild snags and this is my attempt to really grease the rails on the way to running the greeter sample smart contract now that we have Ubuntu running natively on Windows 10 this, the native windows binary path for what are obviously linuxy bits sorta feels like a less direct path to success but IIRC i had initial snags that kicked me in this direction these commands target a local private net instance… we get free gas this way so i figure inhale that immediate gratification as quickly as possible and use that energy to conquer our next ether mountain getting spun up and ready to spend some ether Ethereum.
