GOW bash not working

Had difficulty getting bash running until I read the issue in github...

The quick fix is to create an /etc directory in the gow directory (default gow install directory: C:\Program Files (x86)\Gow - so create directory: C:\Program Files (x86)\Gow\etc)

This was an issue that was going to be fixed in GOW v0.8, but in never got fixed. (https://github.com/bmatzelle/gow/issues/65)  GOW btw is a great alternative for CYGWIN, and if you really need to install other linux apps onto you Windows Machine, (like apt-get) check out Chocolatey!
