This is a good idea, though I will not be able to contribute much on the 
Windows side of things as I dont use Windows. I might be able to handle

As we all know, the CLI stuff will remain the same (there is not much on 
the wikipage). However, the gui ways of doing things are vastly 
different and so I would think that we would need different guides.

Right now, I am not sure if I can commit any time to this, but I will
