Using symbolic links under Windows

Since Windows Vista it is possible to use symbolic links just like you know it under Linux/Unix systems.
Warning: You have to use the command line to use this tool ;-)
The syntax is as follows:

 mklink [[/d] | [/h] | [/j]] <Link> <Target>  

Most of the time I use it with the /d option. This lets the link point to a directory.
