I don't think it's difficult for them, I think they often just don't know they can. Environment variables just aren't as well known on Windows these days. If you are an 18 year old getting into programming you likely have never even heard of environment variables or batch files and may not even know how to use the command prompt (or open it for that matter). Windows Vista came out when they were 10 years old and the days of having to know and use the command prompt for typical users were long gone by this point. I'm thirty so I knew and used MS-DOS as a kid (I had to) but if you've never used these things how would you know you could?


There are OS courses at institutes, where you have linux, gcc and learn, how pipes, shared memory and synchronization mechanisms work.
