Resource Kit Tools

Scott Hanselman keeps a list called the Ultimate Developer and Power Users Tools consisting of must-have tools for Windows developers.

He did forget one important source of tools and that source is the Windows Server 2003 Resource Kit Tools (formerly, Windows NT Resource Kit). My favorite command from this toolset is “linkd” which creates a junction (parse point or symbolic link) from a directory in one drive to another directory in another drive; this works at lower level than the Windows shortcut mechanism.

For ex-UNIX developers, there’s also the free Windows Services for UNIX that provide a set of UNIX commands and shells for Windows users with much better integration than the open-source Cygwin.
