Bash is available also for Windows, but you are right. I'm on Ubuntu
12.04 at the moment (had thoughts about switching to something else,
maybe Arch or whatever, but I didn't yet).
That makes sense anyway; in Windows you would expect UTF-16 or
something rather than UTF-8, I guess, if not ISO-8859-something. Or
even worse: Windows-1252… :P
But I didn't use Windows since 2007, so I'm not sure what happened
with it since then.
