Reading Xavier's diary entry "Keep an Eye on Command-Line Browsers", I wondered when exactly curl was introduced in Windows 10?

I found this Microsoft blog post from December 2017: Tar and Curl Come to Windows!.

Indeed, another surprise to me: tar (bsdtar) is also a command-line utility that comes with vanilla Windows 10.
