Great question. You are getting Window because you are not using 'use strict'.

Go to this link and the section called "Securing JavaScript" explains it.

Oops. That actually explains a lot, as I used to get could not read property 'foo' of undefined a lot when passing my functions around as references, in strict mode.

Thank you for the link, I had forgot how much use strict mode changes the game!

It makes code a little bit more reasonable.

Babel has implicit strict mode and u don't have to worry about forgetting to add it. :)
