 > right, that's because qgis and qgis-dev can co-exists.

 Not sure what you're trying to say... because I don't have qgis-dev
 installed and if it was, wouldn't qgis launch with qgis-dev and not qgis?

 OK, I think this should stay open till it's actually fixed because it's
 not working like it should, or some instructions need to be updated (ie,
 in the osgeo4w list of applications as seen in the terminal, change it
 from qgis -> qgis.bat so users know to type qgis.bat instead of just qgis
 like it says).

 How come it worked before where I could launch qgis with just the qgis
 command and now all of a sudden you have to type qgis.bat? I thought qgis
 would call qgis.bat like it always did in the past.
