After spending quite a bit of time this week in trying to get a Vagrant box set up I discovered an issue today that hampers its usability. Actually this issue is not with Vagrant, but rather using VirtualBox on Windows. The big benefit of this setup is being able to have all your work stored in Windows, and then having that folder available in the VM. But symlinks can't be created in the shared folder from the VM.
I think I'll probably be able to work around this issue, but it is a pain.
