Issue with Hello-Blockstack tutorial on Windows 10

I follow the steps in Hello-Blockstack tutorial on my Windows 10 computer and encounter issue similar to this reported in github. Eventually, I edit the package.json file as commented by @plyoung on April 23, 2017 to resolve the issue. I would like to suggest someone look into the yeoman Blockstack app generator as such issue might frustrate beginners who are trying out Blockstack on Windows.
