Many months ago, I tried PostgreSQL on Windows 98 so I could respond to
a post on pgsql-ports. It seemed to work. So, my answer is a guarded
"yes." However, Cygwin runs *much* worse on 9X and Me than it does on
NT 4.0 and 2000 implying (IMO) the same for PostgreSQL.
Unfortunately, I never ran the regression tests. Since, I no longer have
access to a 9X or Me machine, I cannot do so now. Would you or someone
else being willing to try out the regression tests and report back to the
list? I recommend trying make installcheck (i.e., sequential schedule)
first and then if that works, try make check (i.e., parallel schedule).
