I took my entire Ubuntu 18.10/Emacs 26.1 .emacs.d directory over to a Windows machine and have Windows Emacs 26.1 using it.

Seems to work all right; haven't really stress tested it yet.

However, looking throughout my init.el, wherever there is supposed to be nil there is the symbol nil symbol . I'm guessing this is aggressive UTF-8 substituting? How can I turn this off?

    prettify-symbols-mode with modified prettify-symbols-alist could do that. – Tobias Feb 2 at 7:03
