How do you create a folder named "CON" in windows??

You switch to linux and name it whatever the hell you want!!

    Can't use LPT or other named pipes either

    mkdir CON
    also to remove:
    rmdir CON

    Tried this, but when I accessed the folder, I got "...\...\CON" is not accessible
    : /
    Turns out it only works through CMD but not GUI

    @cho-uc sorry, I was using the bash prompt that came with git. Creating or accessing the folder using cmd or ps does not work.

    CON is a special name, like NUL.

    fire up a Win9x VM and try to do anything related to C:\CON\CON and you'll see what I mean
