Lately I’ve been tracking updates to Windows’ Linux Subsystem, which is a surprising new chapter for Windows developers. I can now do Node/Ruby/web development the way I’m used to doing it in MacOS and Linux with Windows!

Recently, I had an assignment to create and test various sorting algorithms with input ranges from $n=10^2$ to $n=10^6$. Thinking that the larger sets of data might get unwieldy otherwise, I selected C++ to run the tests, hoping speed would carry on to the more inefficient brute force algorithms.
