>                 Key: HBASE-16568
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-16568
>             Project: HBase
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: documentation
>    Affects Versions: 2.0.0
>            Reporter: Daniel Vimont
>            Assignee: Daniel Vimont
>            Priority: Minor
>         Attachments: HBASE-16568.patch
> Cygwin-oriented instructions in the official reference materials (for 
> installing HBase in a Windows environment) seem to be out of date and 
> incorrect; a number of unresolved/unresolvable requests for help have been 
> posted to d...@hbase.org and u...@hbase.org mailing lists.
> Discussions on d...@apache.org and HBase Slack channel resulted in (1) no 
> volunteers to update/maintain the Cygwin-oriented instructions, and (2) 
> several "+" votes and no "-" votes on the suggestion of removing 
> Cygwin-oriented instructions from the official reference materials.
> FUTURE POSSIBLE FOLLOW-UP: For the sake of setting up a 
> development/testing/sandbox environment in Windows, it might be helpful to 
> recommend the installation of a virtual machine environment (e.g. VirtualBox) 
> in a Windows OS, followed by the installation of an appropriate flavor of 
> Linux (e.g., Ubuntu) in the VM. After this, all the standard HBase 
> installation/config/usage instructions can be followed.
