So after installing the new version of ASP.NET Core I wanted to try out the new CLI so I started a command prompt ran "yo aspnet" made all the simple choices and then I got a template setup and a list of instructions on what to do next. All good!!!

But something caught my eye a little message stating that bower is not recognized as an internal or external command....weird but everything else was looking good so I looked around some and discovered that well ... bower was not installed on my machine. So a quick "npm install -g bower" and then re-did that whole "yo aspnet" ...no more errors...great !!

Still can't figure out how come Bower was not installed on that machine, but anyways not it works and all the dotnet command also, which by the wat I think make more sense than what was previously available.
