Because it doesn't have the Unix cl tools? If you install msysgit it adds pretty much all the Unix CLI tools to your windows box you can run in CMD. It also gives you a BASH shell if you prefer that. Also, you might want to take a look at Console2... a nice free utility that makes it easier to manage multiple shells on windows and enhances them with better copy/paste support, etc.

Twas just a suggestion. You can ignore it as you wish.

Yes and no. MS does fix issues... hence the service packs. Do they fix the issues you care about? Well, if you can prove a lot more people than you care about it, yes. Of course, they WON'T fix your issue if you don't make them aware of it and just bury your head in the sand with comments like the above.
