Advogato: "I will not lie to you by telling you that all the tools you can find on Linux are completely unavailable on Windows.
In fact, it would be possible to get a working Linux-like development environment on top of Windows. However,
this solution is both not as integrated as a native Linux workstation and will require a lot of time and frustration
to set up. This fact is partly due to the fact that free software traditionally originated from the UNIX world, and
partly due to the fact that Microsoft does not make enough effort to change the situation."
