Is running DRUSH on a Windows 7 64 bit machine in a WAMP dev environment worth it? I've heard there are some speed and performance issues with this set up? Will I lose any functionality with this set up?


Try the dev version at Drush-on-Windows-Installer GitHub.

Some key functionality, such as remote sql-sync, is not working yet. You could also try running drush under Linux using a Virtual Machine on your Windows box.

    @Chris: The main advantage of using powershell would be if you were much more comfortable with that shell. The best shell to use with drush is MsysGit, because the others do not support git (at least not as far as I know). – greg_1_anderson Oct 4 '11 at 18:11
