Not coming. It's here: https://ms-iot.github.io/ROSOnWindows/

We actually met with these guys at ROSCon and we're hoping we can run this alongside the DS this year. We're experimenting with it now.

Marshall is forgetting the growing pains we had in the previous season as well. Programming details aside, it takes a little bit of time to wrap your head around the concepts. Luckily we had some motivated students willing to beat on it in the background as we also worked on getting our comp robot software running.

As has been mentioned, though, you can work through those concepts using the tutorials on the wiki in a standard Ubuntu install, no FRC anything required. Once (if) you feel reasonably comfortable with that, then start looking at the FRC specific stuff we did. We think it has been worthwhile, but there's no doubt that there is some pain between here and there.

Windows VM image running on mac. Inside the VM image run a Ubuntu container running ROS. Should be straightforward

ETA - or for real, try one of the options here : https://hub.docker.com/_/ros/. Kinetic is stable, melodic is stable but newer so possibly not as stable.

Re: FRC at ROSCon 2018

If I recall correctly in fact ROS has been on windows (albeit in a limited and less supported way) for a while now. I remember coming across it when I was first learning about ROS 3 or 4 years ago. It is great it is coming to windows in a more official state though!

Preemptive correction:
I did some quick research, turns out I remembered ROS could run on my default operating system, at the time OSX experimentally. Though it also turns out there were also experimental methods to run it on windows on versions predating my research.
